Taking a chance on defending employment claims at trial
Friday, Nov. 9, 2018
Time: 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (EST)
Registration: 8:00 a.m.
Location: Troy Marriott Hotel
Presented by Plunkett Cooney's Labor & Employment Practice Group
It’s a risk management decision most employers and insurance professionals will have to make at some point – take your chances at trial or do everything you can to settle your case?
This unique mock trial program, which is based on an actual sexual harassment and retaliation case, will provide attendees with an opportunity to learn about the inner workings of a trial and will pull back the curtain so participants can watch and listen as a jury deliberates before returning its verdict.
Featuring some of Plunkett Cooney’s leading trial attorneys, this program will cover elements that sparked the #MeToo movement and trial tactics like the “Reptile Theory,” which plays on the emotions and most primitive parts of a juror’s brain to position the plaintiff’s case for success.
Will our employer defendant come up snake eyes after rolling the dice during our mock trial or will the jury see through the plaintiff’s efforts to distort, manipulate and obfuscate the facts and grant a favorable defense verdict? Register now to find out!
This free, half-day program will include:
- Depositions and Other Pre-trial Activities
- Opening Statements
- Cross Examination of Witnesses
- Closing Arguments
- Jury Deliberation via Live Audio/Video Feed
- Verdict Analysis with Jury Q&A
Following the mock trial, our attorneys will discuss post trial options employers can pursue on appeal should a jury render an adverse verdict. The program will conclude with an update on significant Michigan employment law cases.
Who Should Attend?
“Rolling the Dice” is a must attend event for human resources professionals, business owners and executives, insurance professionals, in-house counsel and risk managers.
