ILR President Harold Kim Op-ed: Liability Protection is a Piece of the Back-to-Work Puzzle

“As much as liability protections are needed now, they will be even more necessary in the coming months, as businesses reopen and start surveying their financial wreckage” ILR President Harold Kim wrote in an op-ed that ran in Real Clear Politics. In the op-ed Kim argues that the last thing business need is a hanging cloud of liability and risk as they work to reopen. Recently, ILR released a report that outlines the different ways businesses may be vulnerable to litigation because of the virus. 

“No one will be spared from that threat, from grocery stores and restaurants to furniture stores and other big-box retailers, to manufacturers, farmers, and even homeowners,” Kim wrote. “Already, trial lawyers in Florida, Ohio, and Tennessee are airing aids for COVID-related lawsuits. Lawsuit marketers are soliciting law firms to take advantage of cheap ad buys. Even litigation funders­­ — the group that takes a cut of settlements in exchange for financing lawsuits — are touting their services.
