Bo Phillips spoke on the panel “Best Practices and Non-traditional Settlement Strategies and Mechanics in Class Action Cases Including Discussion of the Proposed Changes to Rule 23 and How They May Affect Settlements Under the Federal Rules,” and co-chaired the 2017 Class Action Litigation Conference – San Francisco, hosted by Bridgeport Continuing Education.

The class action landscape continued to evolve dramatically in 2016 and 2017. The Campbell-Ewald Co., Spokeo, and Tyson cases were decided and issues such as class standing, certification, and use of statistical evidence changed. Arbitration, nationwide class certification, proof of classwide reliance, actual injury, and market remedial actions still dominated class action orders and opinions.  This program explored the recent SCOTUS decisions, key circuit-level opinions, and their impact on the plaintiff and defense bars. For those who dedicate their practice to class actions, whether plaintiff or defense, there was much to review and discuss from the previous year. This program covered the latest developments in the law of federal class actions as well as procedural advice from leaders in the field. This timely conference included a discussion of the development of recent major class actions cases and decisions as well as a look at upcoming cases and changing trends in class action practice.
