David Frederick to Speak at AAJ Membership Luncheon

The American Association for Justice is pleased to welcome David Frederick as the invited keynote speaker at AAJ’s Membership Luncheon. Mr. Frederick is a partner at Kellogg, Huber, Hansen, Todd, Evans, & Figel P.L.L.C. His practice encompasses a broad array of subject matters including the American with Disabilities Act, antitrust, appellate and civil procedure, cable television rules, energy, foreign sovereign immunity, patent, preemption, RICO, riparian rights, securities, transportation, and tribal court jurisdiction. He has argued numerous cases before the Supreme Court of the United States. He was an Assistant to the Solicitor General at the United States Department of Justice from 1996 to 2001. At the Membership Luncheon you will hear about Mr. Frederick’s recent success in Wyeth v Levine. The U.S. Supreme Court upheld a Vermont jury’s decision that Diana Levine, the plaintiff in the Supreme Court case, could hold the drug manufacturer accountable for the injuries she suffered—which included the loss of her arm—after taking one of Wyeth’s medicines.

Please join your colleagues at the Membership Awards Luncheon to honor winters of the prestigious Leonard M. Ring Champion of Justice Award, the Lifetime Achievement Award, the Steven Sharp and the Pro-Bono Award
