Anthony Rollo, Co-editor of the CAFA Law Blog and head of McGlinchey Stafford’s nationally recognized Class Action Defense Group, was asked to participate in the “Class Actions in the Gulf South and Beyond” symposium sponsored by the Tulane Law Review.
Following upon the success of the 2000 symposium entitled “Class Actions in the Gulf South” (available at 74 Tul. L. Rev. 1603-2268), the Tulane Law Review had planned to host a Fall 2005 live symposium entitled “Class Actions in the Gulf South and Beyond.” However, in the wake of Hurricane Katrina and the resultant uncertainties, the Law Review cancelled the live conference, but advises that it will still feature professors, practitioners, judges, and students from across the country in its print symposium, in which topics of local and national importance will be addressed, including “Viability of State Class Actions,” “Choice of Law Complexities in Multistate Class Actions,” “Settlements after the Class Action Fairness Act of 2005,” “Ethical Issues arising in Class Actions” and “Post-Hurricane Class Actions.” Stay tuned to CAFA Law Blog for more information as New Orleans continues its rebuilding efforts.
