This month’s free webinar from Public Justice is tomorrow, July 9th, at 2:00pmET/11:00amPT.
With increasing frequency, corporate defendants in class actions are making offers of judgment to the named class representative, and then arguing that the case is moot (even when the plaintiff refuses the offer). While most courts rejected this tactic prior to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in the Genesis case, the law has become increasingly complicated and divided around the nation.
During this webinar, Executive Director Paul Bland will explore the principal arguments that plaintiffs can make to defeat corporate efforts to pick off the named class representatives, and discuss some practice tips that counsel should consider to strengthen their arguments and position against this cynical defense strategy.
Paul Bland has been a senior attorney at Public Justice since 1997 and presented at more than 100 continuing legal education or professional conferences in more than 25 states. As Executive Director, Paul manages and leads a staff of nearly 30 attorneys and other staff, guiding the organization’s litigation docket and other advocacy.
This free Speaker Series is for “members only” and is another great reason to join Public Justice today!
