Dead or Alive? A Discussion on the Continued Relevance of the Hughes Test
ABOUT THE PRESENTATION
This panel will consider whether and to what extent the Hughes test is still applicable, and whether Courts should be returning to a pre-regulatory circumstances where carriers can limit liability without more than a written contract establishing a reasonable value for the limitation. The panelists will also explore the usefulness and applicability of Hughes and its successor cases in light of the legislative history surrounding the statute and practicalities of the transportation industry.
