Partner Andrew King to Present “Class Action Myth Busters” in Fayetteville, Fort SmithNews | August 27, 2019
Andrew King, a partner in the firm’s Little Rock office, will speak on September 9 at the Washington County Bar Association in Fayetteville, Arkansas and on October 7 at the Sebastian County Bar Association in Fort Smith, Arkansas.
The program, titled “Class Action Myth Busters,” will dispel various misconceptions about class action cases including:
- whether a class action complaint can be removed to federal court;
- whether putative class members are represented by counsel;
- whether an Arkansas state court can decide a dispositive motion while a class certification motion is pending;
- the effect of interlocutory class-actions appeals; and
- a defendant’s ability to defend a case after class certification.
The events are open to members and guests of the Washington County and Sebastian County Bar Associations. For more information about the Washington County event, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information about the Sebastian County event, please contact email@example.com.
Mr. King has defended dozens of class actions and secured favorable outcomes on a multitude of topics, including consumer rights, shareholder litigation, oil-and-gas leases, wage-and-hour claims, health care, insurance and products liability. He is co-author of “Shattered Class: Looking Beyond Certification in Arkansas Class Actions” published in the Spring 2019 edition of Arkansas Lawyer magazine.
