ILR Briefly COVID-19 Series: Liability Overview

A tsunami of COVID-19 litigation is already starting to form, and it’s up to Congress, the administration, state legislatures, and governors to shelter businesses from the storm and enable the economy to recover.

This edition of ILR Briefly looks at the primary types of litigation emerging from the COVID-19 pandemic, including:

  • Common law, including negligence, public nuisance, contract claims, and product liability;
  • Labor and employment;
  • The False Claims Act;
  • Data privacy, including virtual meetings, health information, and big data;
  • Financial services;
  • Consumer claims, including the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, false advertising and deceptive marketing, and price gouging; and
  • Securities

The research also looks at early trial lawyer advertising trends and third party litigation funding activity in the context of COVID-19.
