Eleven days after the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, Congress passed the Air Transportation Safety and Stabilization Act (hereinafter “Act” or “Stabilization Act”)1 to protect air carriers from tort lawsuits that threatened to cripple air travel in America. The Act capped tort lawsuits against the airlines at their pre-existing liability insurance limits and limited jurisdiction for tort claims to the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. Moreover, the Act established the September 11th Compensation Fund of 2001 (hereinafter “Fund” or “9/11 Fund”), in which victims of the attacks could opt to waive all federal and state tort claims and receive administrative relief through a predetermined formula, under the discretion of the Fund administrator. That the airlines were so concerned about their liability exposure, and the Congress so willing to act promptly upon that concern, is a testament to the mess our modern civil justice system has become.2 This paper will: (1) outline the contours of the “litigation explosion” in the United States, and the problems it creates; (2) examine briefly the historical precedents for administrative remedies designed to replace common law tort actions; (3) expand this analysis to survey the 9/11 Fund experience; and (4) discuss the implications of this experience for possible policy solutions to the liability crisis.

International Mobile Security Study Organizations across the globe are looking for the best way to provide workers with secure “anytime, anywhere, any device” network access. To help IT administrators and the businesses they serve better understand the attitudes and experiences of mobile users in the enterprise with special attention to security, we conducted a survey of more than 4600 end users across 10 countries. Blurred Lines High Expectations 90% of end users say it is important to have similar access and experience on both company and personal devices. Over half of the end users said company devices should be for both work and play. Key Finding: Using personal devices at work has become common and there is an expectation to have a similar experience across all devices. Remote Working A privilege or right? 53% Not-So-Seamless Access 50% have remote access but cite frustration such as access to information is restricted. consider it a privilege, though most end users in China and India believe it is a right. 60% when remote they borrow someone else’s wireless connection at least sometimes. (Of note: 50% from India report borrowing other’s connection all the time.) Key Finding: More than half of end users report that they have the ability to connect seamlessly to their corporate network from any location and at any time.

1999 marked the first year that the prestigious World Robotics, a one-of-a-kind annual publication put together by the Economic Commission for Europe (ECE) and the International Federation of Robotics (IFR), included a survey on service robots. Included in this premier report were entertainment robots, which, coupled with a few other new service robot classifications, were forecast to total 1,000 installations for the period 19992002. This prediction was surpassed ± five times the forecast amount ± in just four days in June 1999 by one robot alone ± the AIBO entertainment robot. Further, what no one was able to predict, including Sony Corporation, the manufacturer, was that the AIBO also broke all records for the greatest amount of robots sold in the shortest amount of time. The first run of 5,000 AIBOs, the ERS-110, was met with an overwhelming response ± one that almost broke Sony's Webserver: 3,000 sold out in Japan in 20 minutes on the Internet and the remaining 2,000, made available only in the USA, were all sold on the Internet within four days.
