13th Annual Conference on Litigating Class Actions

April 27 & 28, 2017. Seattle, WA
Featuring Emily Harris

2016 continued the trend of key developments in class actions, with court decisions on Article III standing, mootness, arbitration clauses with class action waivers, ascertainability, commonality, predominance, trial by formula, and settlements.  Lower courts continue grappling with opinions from the U.S. Supreme Court in cases such as Comcast, Concepcion, Dukes, Genesis Healthcare, Halliburton, and Spokeo.  The Supreme Court’s current term once again includes appeals that will affect class action practice.  The Trump administration, a Republican-controlled Congress, and revisions to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 23 will bring further changes to class actions.  New filings in state and federal courts remain high with uncertain and mixed outcomes.  Please join us for this two-day program covering important developments in class action law, with presentations demonstrating that class actions remain a vibrant and significant area of law.

Emily Harris will speak on a panel “Settlement Strategies for Class Actions and Multidistrict Litigation.”  The panel, moderated by Cathy Yanni, Esq. of JAMS, will discuss: best practices for designing a settlement that the courts will approve; when not in court, adapting strategies to better fit ADR; and tips for more effectively administering settlements once approved.
