Steven Badger Participates in Development of Discovery Protocols for Federal Court Disaster Litigation

February 20, 2019

Steven Badger, a partner in the Dallas office of Zelle LLP, participated in a group of prominent judges and attorneys in the development of “Initial Discovery Protocols for First-Party Insurance Property Damage Cases Arising from Disasters." 

The protocols were developed by IAALS, the Institute for the Advancement of the American Legal System, with the support of a grant from The Foundation of the American College of Trial Lawyers. IAALS brought nationally renowned attorneys from all perspectives—including plaintiff and defense, FEMA, the Texas U.S. Attorney’s office, and state and federal judges—together to develop streamlined, pattern protocols for exchange of information in first-party insurance cases arising from disasters, both natural and man-made.
