Burch & Garrett on List of 2019’s Most-Read Access to Justice Articles
Elizabeth Chamblee Burch of the University of Georgia School of Law and Brandon L. Garrett of Duke Law School were included in the year's most-read articles from Access to Justice Law360 guest authors.
Professor Burch’s piece “Does Multidistrict Litigation Deny Plaintiffs Due Process?” discusses the trend of Judges in multidistrict litigation consistently appointing lead plaintiffs lawyers to cases. Professor Burch suggests that these appointments are not always in the plaintiff’s best interest.
Professor Garrett’s piece, “Risk Assessment Tools Are Not A Failed 'Minority Report'" (coauthored with Sarah Desmarais and Cynthia Rudin) discusses the use of risk assessment tools used by judges in criminal cases. The article was written in response to a New York Times op-ed which implied that risk assessment tools make future violence seem more predictable than it actually is.
