On March 25, 2009, held a webcast sponsored by Cornerstone Research that featured two of the key players in the historic JDSU trial. Jordan Eth, co-lead trial counsel for JDS Uniphase and several individual defendants, and Allan Kleidon, testifying expert for the defense on damages and causation issues, led a discussion of the extraordinary lessons learned from the rarest of events: a jury trial in a securities class action lawsuit.

The panel discussed their experience in defending this massive securities class action at trial, including the unique challenges, trial tactics, and considerations posed by a trial in this type of case. In addition, they discussed the effective use of expert witnesses in a securities class action trial.
