On September 16, the New Jersey Civil Justice Institute is playing host to Ted Frank, the president and founder of the Center for Class Action Fairness. This week Frank appeared before 7th Circuit Court of Appeals, and as often happens when he is involved with a case, there were some fireworks.

If you have not done so already, we encourage you register for our luncheon where Frank will be the keynote speaker. A chance to see “the indefatigable scourge of underwhelming class action settlements” in person is something you don’t want to miss.
