10th Annual Comprehensive Conference on Class Actions
Sponsored by: Law Seminars International
June 12-13, 2014
2013 was another remarkable year for development of class action law, with cases decided by or pending before the U.S. Supreme Court on issues such as arbitration, Article III standing, CAFA, class certification, fraud-on-the-market, issue certification, and mootness. Lower courts continue to develop conflicting interpretations of the recent landmark decisions from the Supreme Court in the American Express, Amgen, Clapper, Comcast, Concepcion, Dukes, Genesis Healthcare, Oxford Health Plans, and Standard Fire Insurance cases. While many of these Supreme Court opinions led some people to predict a significant decline in class actions, the volume of class action filings in both state and federal courts continues to be high with outcomes mixed. Please join us for this program addressing important legal developments in class action law, with presentations demonstrating that class actions are far from extinct.
