The American Conference Institute is hosting its “5th Annual Winning Strategies for Defending and Settling Consumer Finance Litigation & Class Actions” on Monday, September 26, 2005 and Tuesday, September 27, 2005 in New York City, at the Westin Times Square. ACI bills this seminar as “an advanced program with experienced consumer finance attorneys who will offer expert advice on how to successfully strategize, defend, and settle consumer finance class actions” who will provide “invaluable perspectives, insights, and expertise on emerging issues affecting consumer finance class actions.”

Highlights include “From the Federal Bench: Judges Speak Out on CAFA and Consumer Finance Litigation,” in which nationally recognized federal district court and appellate judges will give their perspectives on litigation and how CAFA will impact future class action litigation, and “In-House Roundtable on Preventing and Managing Consumer Finance Litigation,” in which house counsel will discuss defense resources and risk mitigation strategy.
There will be a session devoted to CAFA on Monday, entitled “Class Action Fairness Act: Preparing for its Impact on Jurisdiction, Discovery Timing and Techniques, Settlement Strategies and Notice Requirements” at which CAFA Law Blog Co-Editors Anthony Rollo and Hunter Twiford are scheduled to speak.
