Swanholt of Foley & Lardner LLP, and Daniel L. Warshaw of Pearson, Simon & Warshaw LLP for a roundtable discussion concerning, among other issues:

  • class action practitioners’ grappling with the requirements for standing to assert statutory claims;
  • how courts are interpreting Campbell-Ewald v. Gomez as they largely prohibit defendants from “picking off” class representatives under Fed. R. Civ. P. 68, and;
  • the Ninth Circuit’s Briseno v. Conagra Foods ruling and its split over ascertainability as a requirement for class certification.
