Anderson to Speak on Class Action Removal

June 16, 2009

O’Melveny partner Brian Anderson will participate in a teleconference program on “Evolving Class Action Removal Strategies” on Tuesday, June 16 at 1:00 pm EDT. The Strafford Publications-sponsored program will cover a variety of class action removal issues under the Class Action Fairness Act, including who has the burden of proving the existence of federal jurisdiction, how “amount of controversy” is calculated in CAFA removal actions, how CAFA’s exceptions to removal jurisdiction work, and the rules for appealing remand orders under CAFA.

Other program speakers include D. Matthew Allen of Carlton Fields, and O'Melveny alumnus Garrett W. Wotkyns of Schneider Wallace Cottrell Brayton Konecky LLP.
