On June 20, 2011, the SCOTUS issued its long-awaited decision in Dukes, et al. v. Wal-Mart Stores, Inc.  The ruling is likely to spark a transformation of Rule 23 class certification law, and alter workplace class action litigation dramatically in the future.  Our blog analyzed Dukes on the day of the ruling [link to here].

The impact of the ruling will be significant for employers and their approach to employment discrimination litigation.  To that end, BNA is hosting a national webinar on Friday, July 8 from 2:00 – 3:30 p.m. EST, to discuss the Dukes decision and its influence on the future of workplace class actions.  A panel of speakers from the plaintiffs’ class action bar and defense bar will lead the discussion, including Gerald (Jerry) L. Maatman, Jr., Seyfarth Shaw LLP partner; Fatima Gross Gravesvice, president for education and employment for the National Women’s Law Center; and Adam T. Klein, partner at Outten & Golden LLP.

Jerry is the sole defense attorney selected by BNA to lead the panel discussion.
