CLE International is holding its 9th annual conference on class actions on October 3-4, in Washington, DC.  The top-notch program includes presentations on the Supreme Court’s 2013 decisions in Genesis Healthcare, Comcast v. Behrend, Standard Fire v. Knowles, as well as panels on standing in class actions, trying a class action, arbitration, settlement, etc.  Most panels have representatives from both the plaintiff’s bar and defense bar. 

I will be speaking on the Class Action Fairness Act, including Knowles.  My fellow class action blogger Andrew Trask will be speaking on settlements.  There is still time to register if you are interested.  If you’re a regular (or even irregular) reader of my blog and are planning to attend, please drop me a note.
