LexisNexis Interviews Partner James Daniels re Impact of COVID-19 on U.S. Justice System
Commercial Litigation partner James B. Daniels was interviewed by LexisNexis for an article entitled “The Impact of COVID-19 on the U.S. Justice System and the Legal Profession.” Jim discusses many of the adjustments the legal profession and U.S. court system have made in response to the pandemic. When asked whether remote hearings should be more commonplace in the U.S., Jim responded, “I am hopeful we can continue to do this more efficiently going forward. There is no reason why many of these hearings can’t be heard remotely.” Jim also noted, “We are going to see fewer in-person court appearances and only in those cases where the courts deem it essential. I’m hopeful that it’ll give us an opportunity to rethink the way that litigation should be handled.”
