A live 90-minute CLE webinar with interactive Q&A
This CLE webinar will guide employment litigators on pursuing or challenging the admission of "me too" evidence in discrimination, retaliation, or harassment cases. Our panel of experienced employment litigators will discuss the factors courts take into account when ruling on the admissibility of "me too" evidence and share their perspectives and approaches to drafting pleadings, conducting discovery, arguing motions, and trying cases in which "me too" evidence is critical to the outcome of the case.

The panel will review these and other key issues:
