The class action landscape continued to evolve dramatically in 2012 and 2013, and through 2014. Arbitration, rigorous inquiry, nationwide class certification, marketing reliance, actual injury and market remedial actions are all issues that dominated class action orders and opinions. Developments in economic product defect, market misrepresentation, privacy and pure omissions class actions impact most class action practitioners currently prosecuting or defending these cases. For those who dedicate their practice to class actions, whether plaintiff or defense, there is much to review and discuss from the past year. This program, which is geared for the advanced practitioner, will cover the latest developments in the law of federal class actions as well as procedural advice from leaders in the field. This timely conference will include a discussion of the development of recent major class actions cases and decisions as well as a look at upcoming cases and current practice.
Faculty Member and Keker & Van Nest Partner Asim Bhansali will present "Getting Your Settlement Approved."
