LBA CLE: "Maximizing Recovery in Brain Injury Cases"

Join the Litigation Section as it presents "Maximizing Recovery in Brain Injury Cases" on Friday, November 9 at the Bar Center from Noon - 3:15 p.m.

For more details and registration info, click here.

This program will help attorneys recognize when they are dealing with a client who has suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) - particularly the "mild" type where the deficits may be mostly cognitive and therefore more difficult to detect. Attorneys will also learn what experts to consult and what evaluations should be arranged for the client in order to fully develop the damages claim in a TBI case. Most important, attorneys will gain insight into how even a "mild" TBI can profoundly impact a client's life and work and how to communicate that impact to a jury.

Speaker: Thomas E. Sullivan, Ph.D.
Dr. Sullivan has provided extensive neuropsychological evaluations and psychotherapeutic services to both children and adults. He has also served as a consultant to the National Football League and American Hockey League assessing head-injured players and determining when they are capable of returning to play.

LBA CLE: Venue Change for seminary location on sports liability in context of sovereign immunity


Sports Liability in Both the Context of Sovereign Immunity and Beyond!

Join the LBA & University of Louisville as we present "Sports Liability in Both the Context of Sovereign Immunity and Beyond!" at the Louisville Bar Association. Immediately following will be a networking reception hosted by the University of Louisville.

This seminar will focus strictly on Kentucky sovereign immunity. In Kentucky the doctrine of sovereign immunity is alive and was doing extremely well before the case of Yanero v. Davis, 65 S.W. 3d 510 (Ky. 2001). That case held, in part, that individual government employees performing ministerial functions (like driving a car or coaching a baseball team) are not protected by sovereign immunity and can be sued for their torts. That was not possible before Yanero.

This seminar will study Yanero and the holdings of numerous other cases from the Kentucky appellate courts that have analyzed Yanero and its systematic reconstruction of Kentucky sovereign immunity.

The seminar should be provocative insofar as its speakers will discuss whether sports are properly considered educational activities or not, or properly governmental activities or not, both of which were issues before the court in Yanero---and how that makes a difference as to the sovereign immunity of the coaches or other entities sponsoring sports activities in Kentucky.

Speakers include:
A. Thomas Johnson, Attorney at Law
Hays Lawson, Pedley Zielke Gordinier & Pence

Cancellation Policy:

All cancellations must be received by the LBA 24 hours in advance to receive a credit or refund. Cancellations received the day of the event will require payment for lunch (where applicable).
