Louisiana State Bar Association Mass Tort Symposium

Last Friday (October 19) I spoke at the Louisiana State Bar Association 8th Annual Class Action/Mass Tort Symposium.  There were many interesting local, out of state and nationally recognized lawyers from this very active mass tort bar and the presentations were very interesting. 

One of the most interesting complaints was that of the panel on mediation strategies, who were very concerned about the infighting and fee disputes among lawyers in MDL cases and the effects of these disputes on the bar.  While the fee issues in class actions have been the subject of significant scholarship, there is room for more work on these issues.
