Don't forget to register for State Consumer Protection Laws: Enforcement and Litigation Trends in California, sponsored by the American Bar Association, Section of Antitrust Law, Private Advertising Litigation and Consumer Protection Committees.
The teleconference will take place tomorrow, May 11, 2011, at 10:00 a.m. Pacific. It is free to register.
I will be one of the speakers, along with Dale J. Giali of Mayer Brown LLP, Deputy Attorney General Sheldon H. Jaffe of the California Department of Justice, and our moderator, Keri E. Campbell of Kelley Drye/White O’Connor. Here is the description of the program from the flyer:
An expert panel with diverse perspectives will review California’s major consumer protection laws, including the Unfair Competition Law, the False Advertising Law and the Consumers Legal Remedies Act. The panel will discuss these laws’ uses in recent private civil and public enforcement actions. This will be the first in a state-by-state series looking at the particularities of each state’s consumer protection statues and common law and discussing what makes the state an attractive or unattractive venue for consumer fraud class action challenges and/or competitor challenges, as well as hearing from the regulators on the current consumer protection enforcement priorities.
