Plan Your Year 2000 Litigation Strategy With The Year 2000 and Beyond From CCH

(RIVERWOODS, Ill., September 15, 1999) – Business losses due to the Year 2000 date-change problem are likely, and prudent businesses and their legal counsel need to prepare now to minimize liabilities and maximize recoveries, according to CCH INCORPORATED (CCH), a leading provider of business and regulatory law information. To help professionals deal with the legal and business consequences of date-related computer problems, CCH has published The Year 2000 and Beyond: Liability and Insurance for Computer Code Problems.

The Year 2000 and Beyond is a one-volume, loose-leaf treatise on legal liabilities arising from Y2K problems, the legal grounds on which to recoup Y2K costs from third parties and potential insurance coverage for Y2K costs and liabilities.

"The Year 2000 problem already has been extraordinarily costly and brings with it substantial uncertainty, additional costs and, in all likelihood, waves of litigation," according to The Year 2000 and Beyond lead author Kirk A. Pasich.

Answers to Critical Questions

Offering practical guidance from nationally recognized Y2K authorities, The Year 2000 and Beyond: Liability and Insurance for Computer Code Problems provides expert analysis and detailed descriptions of the wide range of legal challenges that can arise from a Y2K problem – losses, claims and insurance coverage. The treatise details how to avoid or minimize liabilities and provides insight about third-party recoveries including insurance coverage.

Many professionals are not aware of the coverage for Y2K and other computer code problems that already exists in traditional policies. The Year 2000 and Beyond fully discusses how insurance may pay for compliance costs, business interruption, remediation expenses, litigation expenses and other costs associated with computer code problems.

Not only does this new treatise discuss Y2K issues in depth, it also covers a variety of other date-related computer code problems that can surface as far out as forty years from now, as well as numeric problems such as those related to Social Security and telephone numbers.

About the Authors

Lead author Kirk A. Pasich has over 20 years experience in legal matters involving insurance coverage and commercial litigation, risk management and legal services, and has written over 100 articles and columns for the nation’s most respected law publications. Co-authors Curtis D. Porterfield, Linda D. Kornfeld, Mary Craig Calkins and Scott W. Alderton, members of the law firm Troop Steuber Pasich Reddick & Tobey, LLP, are each recognized authorities on Y2K litigation and the law.
