That is the title of my panel at the ABA Section of Antitrust Law's 59th Annual Spring Meeting, which will take place on March 30-April 1, 2011 at the JW Mariott in Washington, D.C.
Here's the detailed panel description:
California’s Unfair Competition Law may make it easier for plaintiffs to maintain false advertising and other consumer class actions without demonstrating reliance or injury to absent class members. What are the implications of Tobacco II and its progeny, as well other recent trends regarding class certification and available monetary relief?
Session Chair and Moderator:
- William F. Tarantino, Morrison & Foerster LLP, San Francisco, CA
- Angel Garganta, Arnold & Porter LLP, San Francisco, CA
- Kimberly Kralowec, The Kralowec Law Group, San Francisco, CA
- The Honorable Richard Kramer, Judge, San Francisco Superior Court Complex Litigation Department, San Francisco, CA
If our planning calls are any indication, this is going to be a very lively panel indeed. Of course we'll also be talking about Kwikset. I hope to see some of you, especially East Coast friends, at the Spring Meeting in a few weeks.
