Trends and Developments in Class Action Litigation

With class action defense spending on the rise for a third consecutive year, companies across industries are facing more, and increasingly complex, class action litigation.1 Furthermore, 70 percent of companies are consistently reporting that they face one or more class actions on an ongoing basis.2

What trends can be seen in recent class action litigation from across the country, and how can companies use this information to reduce their own risk? A new Manatt webinar, led by partners in our class actions and TCPA compliance practices, answers those questions.

During the 60-minute presentation, participants will:

  • Learn about recent trends in class action litigation, including false and deceptive advertising and mobile accessibility; privacy and data security, including the Shine the Light Law and the California Consumer Privacy Act; and the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA)
  • Gain insights into the court’s analysis of standing following Spokeo, Inc. v. Robins and how subsequent case law has limited this ruling
  • Explore the impact of ACA International v. FCC in TCPA litigation and trends around class certification
  • Learn about federal appellate court decisions that are expected in coming months and how their outcomes could impact the class action landscape
