Principal Steven Benenson Presented on Class Action Defense at the Network of Trial Law Firms' Program

4/28/2017

Porzio principal Steven P. Benenson presented at the Network of Trial Law Firms' CLE program, "Litigation Management: New Trends and Techniques." This program, a concentrated curriculum for in-house counsel managing litigation, took place April 27-30, 2017, in Palm Beach, FL.

Mr. Benenson's session, "Strategies for Successfully Defending 'No Injury' Consumer Protection Class Actions," took place on April 28, 2017 at 12:20 PM. This session explored the rise of these challenging and risky statutory penal damage class actions based on alleged unlawful terms in consumer contracts and on-line Terms of Use. New Jersey, which boasts having some of the most progressive consumer protection laws in the country, is on the vanguard. Using the State's "Truth-in-Consumer Contract, Warranty and Notice Act" ("TCCWNA") as a model, Mr. Benenson addressed evaluating dispositive motions in light of statutory prerequisites, analyzing the impact of choice-of-law and forum selection clauses, and opposing class certification under Fed. R. Civ. Pro. 23.
