The MSBA Antitrust Section Presents
"Class Actions: Same Rules but New Challenges"
This discussion will address recent developments in class action law that will likely impact antitrust practitioners. Those developments concern the impact of arbitration clauses on class certification (Stolt-Nielsen (S.Ct. 2010); the evolving standards for proving the Rule 23 requirements (Dukes (9th Cir. 2010); American Honda (7th Cir. 2010)); and recent challenges to the efficacy of the class device (DeBeers (3d Cir. 2010); Baycol (8th Cir., cert granted 2010)).
