Professor Donald G. Gifford Featured in ABA Journal Story about Lead Paint Litigation


Edward M. Robertson Research Professor Donald G. Gifford, who has written extensively on lead paint litigation and has advised paint companies, was featured in the April 2008 ABA Journal story, "Primed for Lead Paint Litigation: Key Rhode Island case may color the future of the tort of public nuisance."

"The Rhode Island case is terribly important," says Gifford. "If one state manages to recover immense sums of money from manufacturers, then other state attorneys general are going to feel an enormous amount of pressure to follow suit."

Professor Gifford is the author or co-author of three books, including both a torts casebook and a legal negotiation text, and numerous articles about topics including mass torts, products liability, and medical malpractice. He is currently at work on the book The Litigation Mirage: The Illusion of Judicial Solutions to the Public Health Crises Caused By Tobacco and Lead (forthcoming, University of Michigan Press, 2009).
