Litigation and Environmental Litigation
William F. Tarantino
Courts have shown reluctance in certifying classes in environmental matters due in large part to the highly individualized nature of most environmental claims. Nevertheless, the prospect of obtaining class certification remains a potent weapon in plaintiffs' arsenal in environmental and toxic tort litigation.
Join our esteemed panel of litigators as they assess recent trends in environmental and toxic tort class actions, examine the potential impact that recent U.S. Supreme Court decisions like Walmart and Tyson Foods may have on class certification in environmental and toxic tort cases, and analyze why some classes get certified while others fail. All environmental litigators are encouraged to register for this program.
