This year’s United States Supreme Court term promises to be a blockbuster for class action law. By the end of June, the Court will have released three important opinions in the class action arena, including Wal-Mart v. Dukes, Smith v. Bayer Corporation, and AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion — just out in a 5-4 decision that holds that the FAA preempts state-law rules that stand as an obstacle to the accomplishment of the FAA’s objectives, requiring the individual cases involved to be arbitrated as opposed to a class-wide arbitration.
DRI has put together a timely class action seminar for July 21-22 in Washington, D.C.
The seminar will bring together counsel of record from these Supreme Court cases, along with federal appellate judges and renowned class action specialists to address these and other cutting-edge issues of class action law.
