Are Consumer Class Actions an Effective Way of Policing Advertising?
12 PM EST
Panelists representing a spectrum of views and experience will debate whether the existing class action litigation system effectively addresses false and misleading advertising. This includes a discussion of whether the nature of a false advertising claim, to the extent it asks whether consumers have been misled, lends itself to class-wide treatment, and whether there are better ways to handle advertising issues (including modifications of the class action system). Jude Posner's recent decision in Pearson v. NBTY demonstrates the topically and importance of this issue.
