Drones are revolutionizing America’s airspace and raising novel legal questions. In this episode of Cause for Action, ILR Senior Vice President Oriana Senatore interviews Joshua Turner, one of the authors of ILR’s research paper, Torts of the Future: Drones, and a partner at Wiley Rein LLP. Oriana and Joshua dive into the report’s findings, and the future of drones in our courts.
Torts of the Future: Drones takes an in-depth look at the current federal and state regulatory regime for commercial drone use and examines how courts, legislators, and secondary actors contribute to shaping tort law as it applies to drones. ILR’s research asserts that despite the relative technological novelty of drones, the creation of new tort law doctrines to address them is neither necessary nor desirable.
