My firm, BakerHostetler, has recently released two excellent resources for those interested in recent trends in the areas of class actions and data privacy (including, of course, recent trends in data privacy class actions!).

The 2016 Class Action Year-End Review summarizes trends in class action procedure generally and recent developments in a variety of different subject matter areas.

The  2017 Data Security Incident Response Report “highlights the critical need for senior executives in all industries to understand and be ready to tackle the legal and business risks associated with cyberthreats and to have enterprisewide tactics in place to address intrusions before they happen.”  See Full Explanatory Article Here.  In addition to other useful content, the report includes statistic on trends in class actions arising out of large data breach incidents.

Be sure to check both of them out.

I will be speaking on a webinar panel with plaintiffs’ attorneys Keith J. Keogh and John G. Watts tomorrow discussing the latest trends in TCPA class action litigation.  This is a reprise of a program we have done several times over the past few years, but we’ll be covering quite a few new developments this time around, including recent decisions on ascertainability, consent, mootness, standing, and the definition of an ATDS under the statute, as well as current and potential future FCC developments that may impact TCPA litigation in the future.
