Corporate Advantage? SCOTUS, the Defense Bar, and Rules that Keep Plaintiffs Out of Court

1.0 substantive credit in PA, IL, CT, 1.5 substantive credits in NY, NJ, FL

In interpreting procedural rules, has the U.S. Supreme Court stacked the deck against plaintiffs or simply responded to legitimate concerns about unwarranted litigation costs imposed on defendants? Panelists will examine the interplay between corporate interests and the Court and how litigants are navigating enhanced barriers to justice. Topics discussed will include amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure that have limited discovery, Supreme Court decisions that have created heightened pleading burdens and hurdles to class action certification, and the impact on defendants and civil rights plaintiffs, consumers, and employees.
