Bo Phillips will be co-chairing as the lead defense lawyer during the 2018 Class Action Litigation Conference, hosted by Bridgeport Continuing Education.
The class action landscape continued to evolve dramatically in 2017 and 2018. The Epic Systems, American Pipe & Construction, Campbell-Ewald Co., Spokeo, and Tyson cases have been decided, and issues such as class standing, certification, and use of statistical evidence have changed. Arbitration, nationwide class certification, proof of classwide reliance, actual injury, and market remedial actions are still issues that dominate class action orders and opinions. This program will explore the recent SCOTUS decisions, key circuit-level opinions, and their impact on the plaintiffs’ and defense bars. For those who dedicate their practice to class actions, whether plaintiff or defense, there is much to review and discuss from the past year. This program will cover the latest developments in the law of federal class actions as well as procedural advice from leaders in the field. This timely conference will include a discussion of the development of recent major class action cases and decisions as well as a look at upcoming cases and changing trends in current class action practice.
