Lathrop Presents Class Action Update at 2015 UNC Legal Festival

February 2015

On February 14, 2015, Charlotte Litigation Member Tony Lathrop presented “The Class Action in Focus: Recent Developments in Class Action Law” at the UNC School of Law’s 25th Annual Festival of Legal Learning.  Lathrop engaged his audience in discussion regarding recent key U.S. Supreme Court decisions that have impacted the landscape of class action practice, including cases addressing the Class Action Fairness Act of 2005, fraud-on-the-market securities class actions, the enforceability of class arbitration waivers in federal cases, and the requirements for establishing predominance for class certification. He also addressed the direction in which class action law is developing by looking at the issues currently under consideration by the High Court and upcoming proposed amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure governing class actions.
