Class Certification Evidence: Standards of Admissibility and Probative Value Among the Circuits: Strategies for Opposing or Narrowing Class Certification and Preserving Objections, Hosted by Strafford Webinars

Date: 2 March 2022
Time: 1:00 PM ET
Location: via Webinar

This CLE webinar will discuss what evidence courts in different circuits can, will, or may consider when ruling on a motion to certify a class under Federal Rule 23. The panel will review the existing split among the circuits regarding whether courts should entertain only admissible evidence or whether they may consider evidence that would be excluded at trial, the differing rationales in the circuits, and then offer best practices and strategies for opposing or narrowing class certification both in jurisdictions that have not yet taken a side and those that have.

Listen as the panel of class action attorneys discusses the standards of admissibility of evidence at certification and best strategies for leveraging ambiguities.

The panel will explore these and other key issues:

  • How can defense counsel preserve objections to admissibility?
  • How can counsel leverage the law of other circuits in jurisdictions with no controlling precedent?
  • What does how a court assesses evidence imply about its view on admissibility standards?
  • Strafford Webinars
