This panel featured distinguished corporate and defense counsel who are currently members of  LCJ’s Task Force on Class Actions as well as many who are also involved in developing a position paper on class actions for the organization.

Panelists included: 

  • Jeffrey W. Jackson of State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company
  • Daniel L. Gardner of Farmers Group, Inc.
  • Kymberly Kochis of Nelson Levine de Luca & Hamilton, LLC
  • E. Berton Spence of Rumberger, Kirk & Caldwell

The MCC article evaluated highlights of the panel presentation including the benefits of CAFA (Class Action Fairness Act), and the identification of areas of class action litigation that may be ripe for additional reform at the federal and state level. As leaders of American companies and the defense bar, they provided a bird’s eye view of the issues under exploration by the new LCJ Class Actions Committee, including issues related to appeals, cy-prèsand duplicative classes.
