    Procedural Steps and Pitfalls in Antitrust Class Actions

    12 PM EDT

    Please join us for the final installment in our series on antitrust class actions. In this program, we will discuss some more nuanced—but highly important—procedural issues. For example, what are the advantages and disadvantages of combining class discovery with merits discovery? Should a defendant file separate Daubert motions in addition to their class opposition? How should private plaintiffs’ counsel interact with state attorneys general offices? How can defense counsel manage discovery in MDL litigation involving claims by direct and indirect purchaser classes, direct action plaintiffs, and state attorneys general?  How should counsel settle class actions to ensure that the settlement survives scrutiny?
