Comcast v. Behrend Watch List Webinar April 16

In Comcast Corp. v. Behrend, ___ U.S. ___ (3/27/13), a 5-4 majority of the United States Supreme Court reversed a district court order granting class certification in an antitrust action. The Court held that the plaintiffs had not met their burden to show that common questions predominated over individual questions under Federal Rule 23(b)(3) because their damage model fell "far short of of establishing that damages are capable of measurement on a classwide basis."  Slip op. at 7.

At 12:00 p.m. on April 16, 2013, the State Bar's Labor and Employment Law Section, in conjunction with the Antitrust Section, will present the latest in its Watch List series of webinars:
Comcast v. Behrend: A View From The Supreme Court
We are very pleased that the attorneys who argued the case in the Supreme Court, plaintiffs' counsel Barry Barnett of Susman Godfrey, and defendant's counsel, Miguel A. Estrada of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, will join us for this program. Christopher T. Handman of Hogan Lovells will moderate.  Registration is here

If, like me, you cannot attend on the 16th, the program will be available for later on demand viewing.
