Online CLE Class Action Litigation

The use of statistical sampling in class action litigation has reached its height in the recent years. The decisions made by the U.S. Supreme Court in Tyson Foods, Inc. v. Bouaphakeo commenced when it allowed plaintiffs to use representative evidence in the form of statistical sampling to support class certification. However, in contrast, the Duran v. U.S. Bank National Association case revealed that statistical sampling is an unreliable method in determining liability. Hence, the question on the parameters used as evidence in cases leave great uncertainty for litigators.

In this Webcast, a panel of thought leaders and professionals assembled by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an in-depth analysis of the use of Statistical Sampling in Class Action Litigation. Speakers will also present tips as well as strategic approaches in leveraging statistical evidence in employment litigation while avoiding possible risks and pitfalls.
