Albany Law School professor and author Tim Lytton sat down with Food Safety News at the 2015 Food Safety Summit last month in Baltimore, MD, to discuss the influence of litigation on food safety. Lytton describes litigation as one of the three key pillars of the U.S. food safety system, along with government regulation and private industry standards.

Lytton is working on an upcoming book about the U.S. food safety system and has written several books on tort litigation and industry regulation.
