The trial of class actions presents unique and challenging issues for both plaintiffs’ and defendants’ counsel, and for the courts. Our expert panel -- consisting of a state and a federal judge, and lawyers who have tried class actions to verdict -- will share the important lessons they have learned from their own class action trial experiences.
