How To Read A Court Case
This webinar covers the fundamentals of how to read a case, particularly for litigating attorneys. We’ll go through the anatomy of a typical appellate opinion, cover the various standards of review, and talk about specifically what to look for when either using or distinguishing a case in motions practice
Lisa V. Benedetti was born and raised locally in Puyallup. As an attorney at Stritmatter Kessler Koehler Moore, her practice areas include a wide variety of personal injury cases including products liability. Lisa had the honor and the pleasure of joining Stritmatter Kessler Koehler Moore shortly before the Ride the Ducks trial began, and assisted on that unprecedented case.
Lisa has distinguished herself not only in trial litigation but also at the appellate level. She has briefed appeals before the Washington Court of Appeals as well as the Ninth Circuit – setting precedent forbidding an ERISA Plan Administrator from demanding that its members jump through more administrative hoops than those required by the Plan’s express terms (Becker v. Williams, 777 F.3d 1035 (9th Cir. 2015)).
Lisa is an active member of the Washington State Association for Justice. In addition to being an EAGLE, she has spoken at CLEs, authored a chapter in the most recent WSAJ Motor Vehicle Deskbook, and served on multiple boards, committees, and roundtables.
