On October 25, 2007 at 5:30 p.m., the Alameda County Bar Association will present an advanced seminar called "Class Actions in Alameda County." The two complex litigation judges, Robert Freedman and Bonnie Sabraw, along with their research attorneys, Mr. Stemmler and Mr. Obbard, "will present valuable tips regarding the best practices to use in their courtrooms." The seminar will cover:
Pre-Certification Procedures, including Discovery and Communication with Class Members;
Certifying and Decertifying a Class;
Class Notice; and
Approval of Settlement.
This sounds like a very useful program, well worth the $100 registration fee for non-members.
