It has been over 2 years since the first COVID pandemic hit the United States. We are currently on multiple variants of this virus. For most Americans, COVID has impacted nearly every aspect of our lives: how we travel, work, shop, and interact with each other.Litigation
In addition, COVID has impacted our supply chains. We are now seeing inflation that has not been seen in this country in 40 years.
This inflation is having an impact on the retirement plans of many. Most importantly, COVID is affecting how many people view the world.
For those who are trying cases by juries, this is very important. In the last 2 years since COVID has hit, I have tried three cases. I had just completed a trial in Atlanta, Georgia, the week before the COVID lockdown. The juries and the way the juries see the world before COVID are totally different from juries who have experienced life during a pandemic.
So, the question is how does the presentation of cases change? How do we try our cases differently from the way we tried our cases prior to COVID?
