Reynolds and Kirschman Publish “Defense Techniques for Arguing Damages”
Whitfield & Eddy litigators Kevin Reynolds and Rick Kirschman recently authored “Defense Techniques for Arguing Damages” in the Fall 2018 edition of Iowa Defense Counsel Association Defense Update.
The article recounts recent verdicts with multi-million dollar damages awarded in recent years affecting Iowa businesses and insurers. Many of these near “runaway” verdicts can be explained by the “Reptile” litigation strategy among plaintiff’s counsel.
Reynolds and Kirschman outline strategies and tactics throughout the course of litigation and warn of potential pitfalls for defense counsel.
