First, the panel will discuss the application of pleading standards in the period following the Supreme Court’s decision in Bell Atlantic v. Twombly. Second, the panel will cover class action trends, including continuing application of the Class Action Fairness Act, recent decisions such as the Third Circuit’s in Hydrogen Peroxide regarding the standard for class certification, along with class litigation and settlement strategies.
