AAI is co-hosting a symposium on fluid recovery and cy pres relief with the Public Health Trust of PHI and the Center for Law and Ethics at the University of San Francisco School of Law on Saturday, October 30.  These doctrines involve distribution of relief in a class action to someone other than the victims of alleged wrongdoing, often to a public interest cause related to the underlying litigation.  Three panels will address the topic from the vantage, respectively, of judges, lawyers, and recipients of cy pres relief.  The keynote speaker will be Professor Geoffrey C. Hazard, Jr.  CLE credit will be available.
