Excellent Programs
Planned for Washington
A comprehensive program featuring evidence, exam-
ination of expert witnesses, discovery and trial strategy
has been set for the Litigation Section's third annual fall
meeting in Washington, D.C., November 9-11, 1978.
Participants will meet in Washington's newest luxury
hotel, the Hyatt Regency, located downtown near the
Capitol. A Friday night reception in the historic and ex-
clusive State Department diplomatic reception rooms,
hosted by Deputy Attorney General Benjamin R. Civi-
letti, will highlight a full social schedule.
Attorneys from two well-publicized cases-the Buf-
falo Creek Disaster and the Ford Pinto case-will
demonstrate trial techniques. David Webster and
Gerald M. Stern-who has authored a book on the Buf-
falo Creek situation-will discuss that case, while Ar-
thur Hewes and Francis H. Hare will analyze the Cali-
fornia Pinto case.
James W. McElhaney, Case Western Reserve Profes-
sor and noted authority on the law of evidence, will pre-
sent a thorough update in that field. In addition, the
Section will repeat by request two highly successful pro-
grams from the 1977 ABA annual meeting in Chicago:
(1) How to Prove Lost Profits of a Business; and (2)
Complex Construction Lawsuits Made Simple. (See
pages 9-11 for the complete. Washington program.
