Mills Presents Webinar for TIDA

OTrucking Industry Defense Associationn June 19, 2013, Mike Mills presented a webinar for the Trucking Industry Defense Association on the topic of whether a “true conversion” exception applies to the Carmack Amendment.  The importance of this question is raised in the recent Nevada Supreme Court case of Dynamic Transit Co. v. Trans. Pac. Ventures, Inc., 128 Nev. Adv. Op. 69, 291 P.3d 114 (2012).  In that case, the Nevada Supreme Court suggests that such an exception exists.  In an amicus brief submitted by TIDA to the Court, TIDA argued that there is no “true conversion” exception.  The webinar gave practical advice to motor carriers on how they could reduce the risk presented by the Nevada Supreme Court case.

Mike will present a supplemental web‑production on this topic to be posted to this blog shortly.
