Bruce will be doing a mock jury demonstration with Tina Kearns (of Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman), presided over by Magistrate Judge John Facciola.

The case to be argued is a disability discrimination/FMLA case where the terminated employee had Parkinson's disease and requested the reasonable accommodations of flexible hours, an ability to work from home when needed, and the like. He was subsequently fired in a RIF.

Judge Facciola will also be doing a segment on electronic discovery issues that is invaluable. There will also be a new panel on legal issues that arise as a result of social networking that is new to this CLE program.
