Our presenters discuss the Court of Appeals's recent expansion of damages for grief and anguish in the Greene case and its relationship to pending legislation aimed at reforming NY's Wrongful Death law. They will also cover the history of NY's Wrongful Death law, the biased limitations of the current law's language, and how the pending bill would modernize the law and enhance the civil justice system.
