Jeff Levinger Participates in Webcast on the New Proximate Cause Standard in the Pattern Jury Charges
April 20, 2011 in Speeches
Along with four other Texas practitioners and one Texas state judge, Jeff Levinger participated in a live webcast sponsored by the State Bar of Texas that focused on the new proximate cause standard in the 2010 editions of the Civil Pattern Jury Charges. The webcast, entitled “Proximate Cause Redefined: The Controversy Over Substantial Factor,” discussed the extensive debate and deliberations among the PJC committees over the proximate cause definition, provided an inside look into how the change was decided upon, and analyzed how that change may affect the bench and bar. As chairman of the PJC volume on Malpractice, Premises, and Products, Levinger was intimately involved in the discussion, debate, and decision about the proximate cause definition.
