Defending No-Injury Class Actions Post-Spokeo: Standing for Statutory Violations, State Court Litigation, and CAFA Removal
Recording of a 90-minute CLE webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will discuss the impact of Spokeo on “no-injury” class action cases, primarily in consumer protection and data privacy cases, how challenges to Article III standing in federal court impact plaintiffs who try to shift such class actions into state court where different standing rules may apply. The program will discuss challenges for defendants in defending no-injury class actions in state court and navigating the impact of Spokeo on CAFA removal.
- Overview of Spokeo ruling
- Review of the potential impact of Spokeo on
- Circuit court cases addressing standing when a plaintiff files a claim alleging violation of a federal statute
- No-injury claims in state court
- Impact of Spokeo on CAFA removal
The panel will review these and other key issues:
- How have the circuit courts interpreted what constitutes an injury post-Spokeo?
- How have lower courts addressed the issue of standing when a plaintiff files a claim alleging a violation of a federal statute?
- Has the Spokeo ruling rendered CAFA meaningless because the ruling deprives defendants of the ability to defend a “no-injury” class action in federal court?
