Live Webinar
12:00pm – 1:40pm

Greenbaum partner Robert B. Hille will present a live webinar on “The Crumbley Case and Parental Liability” on Friday, May 3, 2024 from 12:00pm – 1:40pm. The program will be hosted by the New Jersey Institute for Continuing Legal Education.

On Feb. 6, a Michigan jury found Jennifer Crumbley guilty of four counts of involuntary manslaughter in a case that experts say sets an important precedent of whether and how parents can be held criminally accountable. Prosecutors argued that Ethan Crumbley’s life prior to the murders was full of “red flags” – among them that his mother was aware of his mental health struggles but refused to get him help and that she gifted him a gun just days before the shooting and did not properly store it. Does this verdict open the floodgates to liability for all parents whose children commit crimes? What about civil liability? This program will analyze the case and related legal issues and discuss the impact of this decision on parental liability claims in New Jersey.

Mr. Hille focuses his practice in litigation, with a particular emphasis on trial advocacy. His areas of concentration include insurance, healthcare law, professional liability and ethics, and white-collar criminal matters, including those related to professional ethics. He has extensive trial expertise that encompasses insurance defense and coverage cases, healthcare disputes, professional liability defense, fraud and abuse, and regulatory issues. He is certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Civil Trial Attorney and lectures frequently on issues related to attorney ethics and professional liability.
