The ‘Gotcha’ Game: Identifying and Mitigating the Class Action Exposure You May Not Know You Have

Overview

Philadelphia partners Mike Daly and Kate Deal presented a Lawline webinar on Tuesday, October 11, 2016.

Mike and Kate presented “The ‘Gotcha’ Game: Identifying and Mitigating the Class Action Exposure You May Not Know You Have.” With an increase of putative class actions stemming from alleged technical violations of obscure statutes, businesses face an increased risk of being exposed to such suits. Mike and Kate identified some of the current growing trends in “gotcha” class actions, including the explosion of litigation under certain federal and state statutes that provide for statutory damages awards. The discussion also covered statutory bases for these actions, common compliance pitfalls, and some best practices for avoiding and, if necessary, defending such actions.
