Judges Share Pros & Cons, Risks & Rewards of Digital Presentations

Judges gathered at an HB’s Judicial Forum on Asbestos on June 3, 2009 for a session on the use of technology at trial. The technology they most commonly see – PowerPoint – drew the most discussion as the judges listed their preferences and rules, as well as the pros and cons. In this clip one judge touted the “extraordinary” impact of animation – sometimes used within PowerPoints – on jurors. Also, thanks to LexisNexis Communities for sponsoring this upload, as well as our National Asbestos Litigation on Sept. 23-25 at The Four Seasons in San Francisco.
