We start the New Year being absolutely heart-stricken by the saddening photographs of koalas, kangaroos and other Australian creatures being absolutely devastated by the worst fires in Australian history. The fire news only underscores what we believe will be the most massive movement of litigation this country has ever seen in the decade to come – climate crisis litigation. And such litigation wars won’t be waged in states like Wyoming and Texas, but rather California, Oregon and New York. One of our top 3 podcasts of last year was our Climate Crisis Litigation podcast, and if you haven’t listened to it, access it here: https://bit.ly/2TCWFKV

Will Belviq be the next Fen-Phen? Listen and share our one-of-a-kind podcast regarding the history behind these controversial drugs: https://bit.ly/3ahmXrV
California’s New Child Abuse Victim Act Provides Victims Access to Justice
As of January 1st, California Child Abuse Victim Act (AB 218) provides anyone who was a child victim of sexual abuse, three years to file their claim against their perpetrators and entities responsible, regardless of when the abuse occurred. California follows New York with this “reopening” of the statute of limitations. Will other states follow? Get up to speed with our podcast here: https://bit.ly/372h6ob

We want to see an end to these efforts targeting our children.
