On Thursday Friday, July 22, 2011 at 10:00 a.m. Pacific, the American Bar Association, Section of Antitrust Law, Private Advertising Litigation and Civil Practice & Procedure Committees, will present a one-hour teleseminar entitled "Class Certification in Consumer Fraud Class Actions After Wal-Mart v. Dukes."
Save the date of October 27, 2011 for the 21st Annual Golden State Antitrust and Unfair Competition Law Institute, presented by the State Bar of California, Antitrust and Unfair Competition Law Section. I am a Vice Chair of the Section and am responsible for co-organizing the event again this year. We will have a special plenary panel on the impact of the U.S. Supreme Court's class-action-related decisions this Term, including Wal-Mart, Concepcion, and Smith v. Bayer, on antitrust and UCL class actions. If the Third Circuit hands down the Sullivan decision by the time of the Institute, that case will be covered as well. More details will be posted on the Section's website soon.
