Compendium of COVID Litigation Issue Summaries


The Retail Litigation Center (RLC) is helping its member spot COVID-19 litigation risks and identify practical steps to mitigate them.  At the Retail Litigation’s Center’s Spring Meeting of the Members in May more than 125 retail legal leaders and 30 RLC Law Firm Members spent time thinking through different types of COVID-related litigation that could emerge from the pandemic.

We covered 14 broad potential risk areas, including: premises liability litigation; employee tort claims; price gouging; disparate impact claims; temperature screening; landlord-tenant disputes; supplier contract litigation; federal investigations; and many more.

Below are summaries with practical tips for in-house counsel that RLC Law Firm Members developed for each of the COVID litigation risk areas. We compiled the information into a Compendium of COVID Litigation Summaries that is available exclusively to RLC Retail Members.
