Episode 15 of the Class Re-Action Podcast is now available

We are up to Episode 15 of the Class Re-Action Podcast, available here.  In case you missed the explanation previously, shows will now run between 30 and 45 minutes, due to changes in MCLE requirements.  I'm working on blanket provider status so that each show will qualify as MCLE.  However, nobody wants reading material as homework, so we are going to stay under an hour an avoid that added complication.

Episode 14 of the Class Re-Action Podcast is now available

Episode 14 of the Class Re-Action podcast is finally up.  We recorded the episode a week ago, but a cold did me in right after the show, and I couldn't get a passable intro recorded until today.  This episode is our version of the year in review. The guests are Hon. Carl J. West (Ret.) of JAMS and Lynn Frank of Frank & Feder, and we discuss the impact of decisions issued in 2014 on mediation in the class action and complex litigation settings.

Episode 13 of the Class Re-Action podcast is now available

Episode 13 of the Class Re-Action podcast is now available.  Our Episode 13 guest is Andrew Satenberg of Manatt, who predicted a year ago our need to discuss Martinez v. Joe's Crab Shack Holdings (November 10, 2014).

Because of the changes to MCLE printed material rules, the Class Re-Action podcasts will now be 30-45 minutes longs, rather than an hour or more.

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.
