(California Lawyer/Daily Journal)  California Lawyer/Daily Journal met with Steven Williams of the Joseph Saveri Law Firm, Steven Ellis of Goodwin Procter, Michael Geibelson of Robins Kaplan, and Dena Sharp of Girard Sharp for a roundtable discussion concerning, among other issues:

  • What law should apply when a case involves state law claims and a nationwide class?
  • How should a nationwide settlement be structured when there are significant variations in state law?
  • To what extent must you be able to identify class members?
  • How are these questions being dealt with in recent cases, including an ongoing antitrust action against Qualcomm involving a quarter-billion-member class—the largest in history?
