Adam K. Peck Moderates Climate Change Panel Discussion at the U.S. Supreme Court
May 11, 2022
Lightfoot partner Adam K. Peck recently moderated a climate change panel discussion at the U.S. Supreme Court. Peck’s panel was part of the “2022 Forum on the Rule of Law: Legal Issues in a Post-Pandemic Society,” which counted Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Stephen G. Breyer, Brett Kavanaugh, Sonia Sotomayor and Neil Gorsuch among its participants.
The invitation-only event brought together distinguished American and British lawyers, judges and legal scholars. Peck’s panel saw Judge of the High Court of England and Wales Justine Thornton and Marshall Scholar Professor Cinnamon P. Carlarne discuss how courts and lawyers are responding to novel climate issues.
The event was co-sponsored by the American College of Trial Lawyers and the Association of Marshall Scholars. Peck is a longtime fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, one of the premier legal associations in the country, and currently chairs the group’s Adjunct Fellowship Committee.
For more than 30 years, Peck's entire practice has been devoted to trial work with an emphasis on cases involving toxic torts, product liability and catastrophic injuries throughout the country. In addition to obtaining defense verdicts on many cases in Alabama, he has taken cases to defense verdicts in Florida, Mississippi, Tennessee and Texas.
