On May 24, 2016, Brendan O'Toole served as moderator for a panel titled "Class Actions 101: The Rules, Certification, Settlement, and the Court." The panel was part of a CLE hosted by the Richmond Bar Association. The speakers covered the important “nuts and bolts” of the class action process in federal court.  They discussed recent developments from the Supreme Court concerning standing and mootness, the requirements for certification under the Federal Rules, and what can (and cannot) be included in a class action settlement.
