How many times have you thought to yourself “this could make a great class action!” but you never followed through because you just didn’t know whether a consumer or employee class action was feasible or appropriate. This is a beginner’s webinar focusing on how to identify consumer or employee complaints that can be turned into great class actions – or when you should reject any notion of filing a class action.
With mortgage loans being the “gold standard” for actual damages in FCRA cases, a consumer’s claims are greatly enhanced by mining all resellers’ liabilities for your consumer clients. Paul Mengedoth will discuss the overlay of additional liabilities involving claims against a “reseller” under the FCRA, common reseller defenses asserted in an FCRA case and practical pre- and post-litigation tips unique to reseller cases.
Interested in handling consumer class action cases? Want to know how to combat common defense challenges to a motion for class certification? This webinar will provide you with recommendations, backed by case law from multiple circuits, to help you prepare a successful class certification motion and respond to common defense challenges to certification.
The second webinar will cover the overlap of FCRA and Chapter 7 (liquidation) bankruptcy. Mr. Krumbein will be discussing very briefly how Chapter 7 works (again familiarity with bankruptcy is helpful but not required), and then go into the substantive law including the White/Acosta/Hernandez settlement. Emphasis will be on e[b] claims and the advisability of doing a dispute under i/s-2[b].
Are you considering or have you just started your own firm? Are you thinking about transitioning into another sub-specialty of consumer protection law? In this webinar, the presenters will discuss the practicalities of choosing specific practice areas in which to grow or expand, or in some cases, which to leave.
