This morning, I had the distinct pleasure of presenting alongside Chicago civil rights attorney Linda Friedman on two cases about which I’ve written before: McReynolds v. Merrill Lynch and Damasco v. Clearwire Corp. As usual, I’m posting the slides here. Three things I’d like to note, though: Slide 3 contains a picture of my daughter… Continue Reading
The other day, I had the distinct privilege of participating in a Strafford CLE on various aspects of ascertainability. I was supposed to co-present with fellow blogger Russell Jackson, but he had a last-minute conflict. His colleague Hayden Coleman (this one, not this one) ably filled in.

Fellow blogger (and extremely nice guy in-person) Paul Karlsgodt… Continue Reading
My apologies for posting late this week; I’m suffering from a little jet lag. I spent yesterday in Virginia at the annual conference for the American College of Court Business Judges, where John Beisner and I were presenting a number of developments in class action litigation. Today I’m England, and by tonight, I will be in the… Continue Reading
… Point of Law is holding a Featured Discussion on the issue, featuring Lester Brickman, R. Matthew Cairns, Jim Copland, Richard Epstein, Ted Frank, Myriam Gllles, Russell Jackson, and yours truly. Pop over; it should be an interesting discussion.
