Class action lawsuits continue to evolve dramatically and remain an integral and exciting part of high stakes litigation. Recent U.S. Supreme Court and lower court decisions have contributed to a shift in class action litigation impacting both the plaintiff and defense bar. Bridgeport’s Annual Class Action Conference will explore the changing landscape and its effect on both big business and consumers. We will examine decisions in the Epic Systems, American Pipe & Construction, Campbell-Ewald Co., Spokeo and Tyson cases and how they have shaped class standing, certification and use of statistical evidence. We will also review cases pending before the Ninth Circuit and U.S. Supreme Court and their potential impact on the Fairness in Class Action Litigation Act of 2017, the law on ascertainability and standing, presumption of reliance, material omissions, and injunctive relief. Our discussion on trends and hot topics will provide participants with an overview of recent activity and a look at what to expect.
The program will also include a nuts-and-bolts roundtable discussion in which plaintiff and defense attorneys will candidly share what tactics and techniques employed by their adversaries they find to be the most effective. This program is chaired by Robin Nunn of Dechert and Laurence King of Kaplan Fox & Kilsheimer.
