Tom McLaughlin, a partner at Perkins & Coie in Seattle, which represents Boeing, announced the new law at the American Bar Association's Forum on Air and Space Law in Hollywood on Nov. 8.The news came as a surprise to the roomful of aviation liability and airline defense lawyers in attendance, who included top officials from the Justice Department and the Air Carrier Association of America. Under the bipartisan bill, when lawsuits are filed in accident cases involving the deaths of 75 or more people due to airplane crashes, train derailments, hotel fires and other mass accidents, the cases must be filed in federal district court.They will then be consolidated under one federal judge for the purposes of discovery.Once discovery is completed, the cases will return to the original federal district court where they were filed for resolution of the liability and damage issues. "When cases are filed in federal and state court, it's a big waste of everyone's time," agreed McLaughlin, who testified before Congress in support of the bill, which his client, Boeing, strongly supported. The downside for plaintiffs is that civil lawsuits in federal court, under a multidistrict litigation panel, can take three to four years to resolve, compared to state court cases which can be resolved in as little as one year.In addition, claimants lose control of who represents them; their hired lawyers may not wind up on the MDL's steering committee.
