June 4-5, 2015
The Eleventh Annual Comprehensive Conference on Class Actions
Sponsored by: Law Seminars International
June 4 - 5, 2015
2014 was a memorable year for developments in class action law, with important appellate cases deciding on issues such as arbitration, Article III standing, CAFA, class certification, fraud-on-the-market, issue certification, mootness, and settlements. Lower courts continue to develop conflicting interpretations of the landmark decisions from the Supreme Court in recent cases such as American Express, Amgen, Clapper, Comcast, Concepcion, Dukes, Genesis Healthcare, Halliburton, Knowles, and Oxford Health Plans. While many of these Supreme Court opinions led some people to predict the demise of class actions, the volume of class action filings in both state and federal courts continues to be high with outcomes uncertain and mixed.
