Class Action Issues Update: The Latest Developments and Looking Ahead to 2021 and Beyond
As part of its work to preserve the effectiveness of antitrust class actions as a central component of ensuring the vitality of private antitrust enforcement, the American Antitrust Institute issues periodic updates on developments in the courts and elsewhere that may affect this important device for protecting competition, consumers and workers. AAI’s Randy Stutz is joined by Hausfeld LLP’s Bonny Sweeney to discuss AAI’s Fall 2020 Class Action Issues Update and look ahead to 2021 and beyond.
They discuss classes containing uninjured members, common impact, statistical evidence (and related litigation strategy), TransUnion v. Ramirez and the Supreme Court’s new makeup, class-action legislative developments and goals, and the relationship of public and private enforcement in prosecuting Big Tech cases.
