One of your humble scribes, Herrmann, will be speaking at the ACI Drug and Medical Device Litigation Conference (on the topic of multidistrict litigation) in New York City later this week. If you’re a regular visitor to the blog, please do say hello.

Herrmann will also be giving a one-hour webinar on drug and device preemption for The Center for Business Intelligence on December 18 from 2 to 3 p.m. Eastern time.

Finally, he’ll be speaking at an American Enterprise Institute presentation on the Vioxx settlement on January 7 in Washington, D.C. More details on that to come.
