The ripple effect of COVID-19 continues to spread, even in terms of anticipated litigation. What impact will the global pandemic have on cases as varied as international law issues all the way to tort suits? Eric Johnson of CompQuantum joins Rebecca Wisbar to discuss what might develop, comparing and contrasting the coronavirus crisis with other situations such as hurricanes and natural disasters. The unique nature of current circumstances might have unusual outcomes for business interruption claims; class action suits; workers’ compensation and more.
