A panel of judges and attorneys will share their experiences, discuss recent case law and statutory developments, and address current issues in the evolving area of class action practice.

Panelists will explore the answers to questions such as:

  • Should plaintiffs seek to certify a statewide only class or a nationwide class?
  • Will the decision depend on whether you are in state or federal court, or whether the case will be removable to federal court?
  • What are the differences in the rules in class action practice in the state and federal courts?

The program coordinators are Jeffrey J. Greenbaum, Sills Cummis Epstein & Gross P.C., and Allyn Z. Lite and Philip R. Sellinger, co-chairs, New Jersey State Bar Association Class Action Committee.
