Scott J. Tucker, Tucker Heifetz & Saltzman LLP, Boston, Massachusetts 9:10 a.m. Class Actions I: The Skilled Health Care Case and Verdict In 2010, a California jury returned a recordbreaking verdict in a class action against a nursing home company. Ms. Wroten, who was on the front lines in that trial, will provide an insider s view of the evidence, the plaintiffs strategy and the factors that drove the verdict. Kippy L. Wroten, Wroten & Associates Inc., Irvine, California 10:00 a.m. Refreshment Break Sponsored by Rendigs Fry Kiely & Dennis LLP 10:15 a.m. Class Actions II: The Emerging Model As demonstrated by the Skilled Health Care verdict, class actions against long-term care providers are an emerging threat in civil litigation.

Patrick B. Curran, Damon Morey LLP, Buffalo, New York 11:10 a.m. The Behavior-Problem Resident Lawsuits against long-term care facilities frequently arise out of elopements, resident-on-resident altercations and other circumstances caused or contributed to by long-term care residents who are physically able but suffer from depression, confusion, dementia or similar mental illness.

Brangman, M.D., FACP, AGSF, Upstate Medical University, Syracuse, New York 12:00 p.m. Lunch (on your own) 1:15 p.m. Winning at Arbitration Arbitration is largely viewed by the longterm care industry as a welcome alternative to the risks associated with a jury trial.

This session explores the strategies for maximizing success at arbitration. Janet A. McSharar, Harrison & Moberly LLP, Indianapolis, Indiana 2:10 p.m. The Science of Death Plaintiffs typically seek to introduce a host of collateral evidence in an effort to distract from the key question of medical causation.

This presentation will explore, in detail, those portions of the act. Richard J. Brockman, Johnson Barton Proctor & Rose LLP, Birmingham, Alabama 9:00 a.m. Understanding Pain and Suffering Claims in Long-Term Care Pain and suffering are elements of damage that may be difficult to assess in the longterm care resident, due to physical and/or mental infirmities.
