Two MRR Attorneys Set to Speak at OACTA Seminar

On August 26, 2016, at the Quest Conference Center in Columbus, Ohio, two MRR attorneys will serve as seminar speakers at the Ohio Association of Civil Trial Attorneys (OACTA) continuing legal education program, “Governmental Liability Seminar.”

Jeffrey T. Kay (Cleveland) presents a “Primer & Update on Ohio Political Subdivision Roadway Liability.” The session will provide an overview of the applicable sections of the Ohio Revised Code and recent court interpretations involving those sections. Jeff focuses his practice on civil rights and governmental liability, business and commercial law, and appellate law, with a concentration on civil litigation defense. He represents insurance companies/risk pools and their insureds with respect to both first and third-party claims, including employment discrimination, professional liability, municipal liability, automobile negligence claims, general commercial matters, bad faith claims, uninsured claims, products liability, wrongful death claims, commercial premises liability claims, and property and casualty claims.

Stacy V. Pollock’s (Columbus) presentation is entitled, “Degrees of Care: How Careful Does a Political Subdivision Need to be to Retain that Immunity.” Stacy will analyze Ohio Revised Code Chapter 2744 immunity with an emphasis on the lesser-understood exceptions. She focuses her practice on employment and labor law, advising both public and private employers in matters involving leave and discipline issues, personnel policy matters, and labor negotiations and arbitrations. She also has considerable experience in education law, representing schools and school administrators on employee and student disciplinary matters. Prior to working in private practice, she worked as a staff attorney with the Ohio Legislative Service Commission in its state and local government section.
