Class Action Litigation: Strategies for Defending or Settling Class Claims

January 23, 2020 | 9:00am PT/12:00pm ET

1 hour | 1 credit

Consumer lawsuits are often filed as class actions, but not all class claims are the same. Sometimes the goal is to dismiss the class claims so that the matter can be litigated, arbitrated, or settled on an individual basis. In other cases, the best option is to negotiate a class-wide settlement. In this webinar, Tom Dominczyk and Brent Yarborough will discuss strategies for defeating class claims and for reducing damages and costs when settling class actions. Tom and Brent will also explain concepts such as fail-safe classes, one-way intervention, ascertainability, first-to-file, and American Pipe tolling. Topics to be covered include:
• Evaluating Class Claims
• The Early Attack: Tools for obtaining dismissal of class claims
• Class Discovery
• Defeating Class Certification
• Reducing Damages and Costs in Settlement

On January 21 New York Governor Andrew Cuomo proposed the licensure of companies engaged in debt collection. Aside from licensing debt collectors, the bill also proposes new disclosures and restrictions on debt collection some of which would prohibit the CFPB’s proposed limited content message and email communication rules.

The panelists will also explore the proposed licensing process and RMAI’s efforts in response to the Governor’s proposal.
