FTC conference on class actions
The Federal Trade Commission's Office of Policy Planning has announced that the commission in conjunction with the Georgetown Journal of Legal Ethics will be hosting a public workshop on "Protecting Consumer Interests in Class Actions" Sept. 13 and 14 in Washington, D.C. The commission has lately been taking a welcome interest in the protection of class members against overreaching behavior by the attorneys representing them, and the workshop page includes a variety of resources on the commission's activities in class action reform, including amicus briefs, the text of speeches by FTC commissioner Thomas B. Leary and former Office of Policy Planning director Ted Cruz, the agency's "Need a Lawyer?" brochure, and its comments on proposed revisions to Fed. R. Civ. Pro. 23.
