The Consumer Attorneys of California, the state trial lawyers association, is holding its annual convention this weekend in San Francisco. (Legal Newsline story.) Yesterday's afternoon sessions included those under the rubric, "Miracle Growth for Your Practice," headlined by Mark Lanier of the Lanier Law Firm. Judging from the program, that growth is to be achieved by gearing up lawsuits in the area of predatory lending, patents and copyrights, false claims and qui tam, and USERRA, i.e., the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act.
