10 Litigation Tips for Defending Minnesota Public Employers

Event Description

Online registration for this event is closed, please e-mail kkozicky@mnbars.org to register.

Public employers sued in civil litigation face unique challenges and may assert unique defenses. They are exposed to a wider array of claims than private employers. They benefit from an array of immunities, but sorting through which ones apply can be daunting, and securing the benefits of them at the most meaningful time—pre-discovery dismissal of a complaint—can be challenging. During discovery, public employers can feel caught in a whipsaw between what the discovery rules may require and strict confidentiality rules imposed by state and federal law. Join us as we sort through these and other issues.
