The complete interview with Anthony Curto can be found here.

We then wrap-up with our “In the News” segment featuring a story from Thomson Reuters News & Insight about federally created floods and who should, if anyone, be liable for damages.If you have a suggestion for a future interview or episode theme, just leave a comment on this blog post or send an email to You can also follow us on Twitter, it’s @legalcurrent.
