Tightening Trends in Class Certification or Business as Usual? — A Mock Hearing

October 09, 2014

Associate Mary Pat Stahler served as a panelist for this program, presented by the Western District of Pennsylvania Chapter of the Federal Bar Association.

Class certification has received the attention of the US Supreme Court and Circuit Courts of Appeal in recent years and many have argued that these decisions have made it more difficult for antitrust plaintiffs (and others) to obtain class certification. This mock hearing presented both sides of the story through the lens of the Apple e-books litigation.
