Gino Brogdon, Jr. Quoted in 'Fretting Over High-Dollar Verdicts, Senate Panel Ponders Legislative Fixes'
Gino Brogdon, Jr., a senior neutral at Miles Mediation & Arbitration, was quoted in a Daily Report article covering concerns by the Georgia defense bar about recent multimillion-dollar “nuclear verdicts.”
Brogdon said “there are some issues where we have to find a middle ground, such as the seat belt law or the statutory limitations for filing time-limited policy demands on an insurer.” He continued,” the goal is not to trick the defense bar or insurance adjusters; it’s to help them do the right thing.
Brogdon was appointed to the Study Committee on Reducing Georgia’s Cost of Doing Business. The study committee includes two senators who also practice insurance and medical-malpractice defense law: Bill Cowsert, R-Athens, with Cowsert & Avery, and John Kennedy, R-Macon, with James-Bates-Brannan-Groover. Other members include lawyers such as Home Depot general counsel Will Barnette; Will Fagan, senior corporate counsel at MagMutual Insurance; State Farm Insurance counsel Mark Tilkin; and Barbara Marschalk, partner with Drew Eckl & Farnham.
