Data Breach Class Actions – Practical Perspectives on Motions, Discovery, Certification, and Settlements

While data breaches continue to cause real harm to organizations and individuals, from disruption to damaged reputations to financial losses, they have also become commonplace. Hospitals, retailers, hotels, email providers, e-commerce companies, credit score companies, entertainment companies, energy producers, manufacturers, universities, and government agencies. And with the proliferation of breaches has come litigation, often in the form of proposed class actions.

Attorneys, corporations, and government agencies involved in a variety of sectors are invited to join three experienced legal professionals for a free CLE webinar that will provide practical takeaways and insights into the unique characteristics of litigating data breach class actions: Kate M. Baxter-Kauf, Partner, Lockridge Grindal Nauen PLLP; David M. Kaufman, Senior Director, Heffler Claims Group LLC, and Michelle Visser, Partner, Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP.

They will address:   

  • Motions to dismiss: role of injury (or lack thereof) in early dismissal challenges
  • Discovery: unique privilege challenges in data breach cases
  • Discovery: discovery of absent class members in consumer cases
  • Class certification: emerging trends from the small sub-set of cases that reach this stage
  • Trends and current events that can affect your settlement: injunctive relief trends, objectors, and administration challenges
  • Plus, your questions via live chat.
