Over 100 people were in attendance at Friday's TORT TALK EXPO 2014 which took place at the Mohegan Sun Casino Hotel in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. The seminar was followed by an outdoor Cocktail Reception on a beautiful Fall day.

I plan to have the written materials reduced to a PDF format so it can be made available to the public should anyone wish to secure a copy. This year's written materials contain, for the first time, a copy of the Post-Koken Scorecard. Also included in the materials are Bad Faith Litigation Updates written by Attorney Scott Cooper and Attorney Neil O'Donnell. I will highlight how to secure a copy of these materials in a future Tort Talk post shortly.
