Supervisor Liability: When Can Managers and Supervisors Be Held Liable? (On-Demand)


Every day, we read about the big judgment entered by a judge or jury. Or perhaps you are on the winning side of such a large verdict or judgment. However, that is just the beginning of the road to actual fulfillment. Join Daniel Cotter as he discusses the ways by which a lawyer with a verdict or judgment can actually collect on those “bell ringers” and discusses a treatment of judgment enforcement practice from discovery to execution.
