‘Is Virtual Justice Just?’ SGT Partner Ernie Teitell Moderates Panel at John A. Speziale Alternative Dispute Resolution Symposium

At Quinnipiac University School of Law

 STAMFORD, CT (December 20, 2022)Ernie Teitell, a Partner at the Stamford trial law firm of Silver Golub & Teitell LLP, recently moderated a panel at the John A. Speziale Alternative Dispute Resolution Symposium on “Is Virtual Justice Just?” at the Quinnipiac University School of Law.

Attorney Teitell and the Hon. Victor Bolden, U.S. District Judge, District of Connecticut, moderated the panel “Lessons Learned” which featured nationally renowned trial attorneys Ben Crump, Peter DeFrank and Ken Friedman.  Attorney Teitell also led a Q&A with the speakers from that session.

Other participants in the morning session “Virtual Trials: What’s the Verdict?” included Prof. Maria Hartwig of John Jay College of Criminal Justice and Prof. Valerie Hans of Cornell Law School. 

The afternoon session “Is ODR the New ADR?” featured Prof. Derek Aguiar of University of Connecticut and Prof. Amy Schmitz of Ohio State University’s Moritz College of Law.  It was followed by two panels that discussed the use of Online Dispute Resolution (ODR) in and outside of Connecticut, which were moderated by Prof. JJ Prescott of the University of Michigan School of Law and the Hon. Cesar Noble, Connecticut Superior Court.

“This discussion could not have been more timely because COVID-19 has forced a dramatic shift to online hearings and that change has stayed with us today even with the advent of socially distanced in-person proceedings,” said Attorney Teitell.  “There are many unanswered questions as to whom has benefited from this seismic change to the traditionally conservative court system.  The most important question, however, is whether justice can ultimately be served by use of these remote or virtual programs.”

The biennial symposia, which are co-sponsored by the Connecticut Bar Foundation, are named for the late Connecticut Supreme Court Justice John A. Speziale in recognition of his work in the field.
