Session Information:

#608 - Epic Maneuvers: Litigation and Legislative Tactics in the World of Class Action Waivers:  Since the Supreme Court endorsed class action waivers as a condition of employment in Epic v. Lewis in 2018, class action litigators on both the plaintiff and defense side have had to adjust their tactics on large class matters.  This panel of class-action litigators will discuss what the class action landscape looks like in the post-Epic world.  Topics will include: litigation of non-arbitrable class statues like California's Private Attorney General Act ("PAGA"); creative attacks on the enforceability of arbitration agreements; death-by-a-thousand individual arbitration demands; and social/media pressure to carve out non-arbitrable claims for sexual harassment.  This panel will provide useful up-to-date information about how courts are responding to class action maneuvers, and what you might see from opposing counsel in your next class action litigation.
