Episode 11 of the Class Re-Action podcast is now available

Episode 11 of the Class Re-Action Podcast just went live.  Guests Kevin Lilly, of Littler, and Aashish Desai, of the Desai Law Firm provide a lively debate about the impact of Duran v. U.S. Bank National Association, S200923 (May 29, 2014) on class certification and trial. I provide more painful commentary about statistics.

Now that the flow of interesting cases is picking back up, we should have no trouble putting together another show next month, even with vacation season season stealing guests away.

Episode 10 of the Class Re-Action podcast is now available

After a month off from recording, the Class Re-Action podcast is back with a new episode. Episode 10 is now available to stream directly or download through your preferred podcasting service.

The shows have been listened to over 1,500 times, so thanks for taking the time to check it out. If I keep practicing, eventually I'll get it right.

After getting through the first year of this experiment, I'd like to take moment out to note a number of the firms and organizations that have been represented in podcast episodes:

  • Blood, Hurst & O'reardon
  • Cohelan, Khoury & Singer
  • Sheppard Mullin
  • Call & Jensen
  • Desai Law Firm
  • Public Justice
  • Littler Mendelson P.C.
  • Schneider Wallace Cottrell Konecky LLP
  • Proskauer
  • Kingsley of Kingsley & Kingsley
  • Manatt
  • Rudy, Exelrod, Zieff & Lowe
  • JAMS
  • First Mediation Corporation
  • Sidley
  • Fisher & Phillips LLP

If we haven't gotten to your firm yet, we are working on it (we've only had 10 episodes, and we know a lot of excellent lawyers in the class action world that we'd like to have on as guests).

We are also pleased to announce that MCLE credit has been issued in the first four episodes, which qualifies The Complex Litigator to apply for blanket provider status.  If you need the credits, soon you will be able to do so for all of our episodes.

Update: Fixed those typos that got past the elaborate error-correcting software matrix.

Episode 9 of the Class Re-Action podcast is now available

Episode 9 of the Class Re-Action podcast is now published (a bit earlier in the day than usual).  Episode 9 guests are Jennifer Zargarof of Sidley and Eric B. Kingsley of Kingsley & Kingsley.  Show topics include discussions of Concepcion v. Amscan Holdings, Inc. (Feb. 18, 2014), Martinez v. Joe's Crab Shack Holdings (now held for Duran), and Williams v. Superior Court (Allstate Ins. Co.), 221 Cal. App. 4th 1353 (Dec. 6, 2013).

As a reminder, the first four episodes now qualify for MCLE credit if you need that, and it shouldn't be long before all shows are eligible for MCLE credit.
