Class Action Procedure Since Wal-Mart v. Dukes

May 13 2016 | Committees

This CLE provided an update on class-certification jurisprudence in Louisiana in the five years since the 2011 SCOTUS decision in Wal-Mart v. Dukes, 564 U.S. 338 (2011). Dukes clarified the rigorous analysis to be applied in class-certification cases.

Specifically, this talk, presented by Stephen Miles on Thursday, May 12th, explored whether or to what extent Dukes, as well as the related case of Comcast Corp. v. Behrand, 133 S. Ct. 1426 (2013), has impacted class-certification jurisprudence in Louisiana.

Pictured are Stephen Miles and Thomas Flanagan, chair of the Class Actions Committee.
