Critical Developments in Toxic Torts Seminar Series:
Body Burden and Subclinical Effects in Court
On July 20, 2006, ELI convened a seminar at Jones Day in Washington, DC to consider the issues surrounding body burden and subclinical effects in court. Questions addressed at the seminar included: What’s the role of lower detection levels for substances in the body and the environment? Does liability flow from detectability? Is the law keeping pace with the science, causing problems, or both? How do we distinguish between such low levels and background levels?
