One of our attorneys, Edward J. McNelis, III, recently made an appearance as an instructor for the 2016 Virginia Trial Lawyers Association Continuing Legal Education Course on Section 1983 Liability. The course was presented on October 5, 2016. Mr. McNelis invited by the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association to speak on the topic of Medical Care Claims Under Section 1983 of The Civil Rights Act. His presentation emphasized the differences between Section 1983 deliberate indifference claims and traditional medical malpractice claims. The presentation was a live lecture that was simultaneously broadcasted via webinar to VTLA members and other attorneys who registered for the course.
