Regulatory and Other Class Action Triggers

Recalls, government investigations, customer complaints on the internet and a variety of other things can be the trigger for a product-based or consumer fraud class action. Learn more about potential triggers, how the courts have addressed the issue of what counts for purposes of demonstrating “knowledge” of a problem that may require disclosure to consumers, and how to avoid or (if that is not possible) anticipate, prepare for and defend class action litigation.

To Appeal or Not to Appeal?

When you receive an adverse decision there are three questions you face: 1) can I appeal it ?  2) if I can, do I want to—what are the pros and cons? and 3) if I decide to appeal, how can I increase my chances of success? This webinar, presented by Jill Wheaton, Chair of the Dykema Appellate Practice group, addresses all  three of these issues.

Technology and the Law: Autonomous Vehicles

The federal government has conducted multi-year, real-world studies, plans more, and already started rulemaking for requiring "vehicle to vehicle communications" (V2V) warning systems. Some auto manufacturers have announced that autonomous vehicles and technologies will be on the market by 2020. This is breakthrough technology, transforming the transportation world we know, with the potential to reduce traffic deaths by 80% and perhaps even more. In this webcast, we provide an overview of the multiple legal issues involving the technologies and ongoing development and testing.
