    What Do Recent Decisions Mean for Indirect Purchaser Class Actions in the US?

    12 PM EDT

    Recent Supreme Court decisions have raised the bar for expert analysis at the class certification stage by emphasizing the importance of “rigorous analysis.” This panel will discuss the implications of the new “rigorous analysis” standard for indirect purchaser class actions. The questions this panel will address include: (1) what level of rigor is required in analyses at the class certification stage, and (2) how have courts applied Wal-Mart and Comcast in their rulings? It will also address issues related to indirect purchaser class actions – such as pass-through of the alleged harm, ascertainability, potential conflict among proposed class members, and third-party discovery.
