The Fall 2021 edition of the ILR Research Review covers a diverse array of challenges in civil liability, from high-tech to low-tech, and from lawsuits over depictions of “happy cows” to biometric privacy litigation. Specifically, the litigation issues discussed include:

  • Biometric privacy legislation dos and don’ts
  • Multidistrict litigation problems and solutions
  • Consumer views of third party litigation funding in the European Union
  • Securities class actions after the U.S. Supreme Court’s Cyan decision
  • Trends in food & beverage litigation
  • The threatening growth of municipality litigation

Each of these areas presents a complex set of challenges that are fully explored in the research. They also urgently demand solutions, which the reader can find at the conclusion of each paper.
