“Class Actions 101: The Rules, Certification, Settlement, and the Court”

This CLE will cover the important “nuts and bolts” of the class action process in federal court. We will discuss recent developments from the Supreme Court concerning standing and mootness, the requirements for certification under the Federal Rules, and what can (and cannot) be included in a class action settlement. The panelists, who have decades of experiencing both prosecuting and defending class actions around the nation, are David N. Anthony of Troutman Sanders, Turner A. Broughton of Williams Mullen, Charles K. Seyfarth of LeClair Ryan, and Leonard A. Bennett of Consumer Litigation Associates.
