Perspectives on the Adelphia Bankruptcy Ruling and Implications for Future Valuation Disputes

New York, New York
27 October 2015
Hosted By: NERA Economic Consulting

In an attempt to satisfy the hurdle set in Comcast v. Behrend, plaintiffs in consumer class action litigation have begun to propose the application of complex survey and statistical tools. In this seminar, Paul Gale, Esq. of Troutman Sanders and NERA experts Dr. Denise Martin and Dr. Kent Van Liere will explain several of these tools, the legal implications of their use, and how the team was able to convince the court to reject class certification in the recent In re NJOY, Inc. matter.

Please be our guest for breakfast and a discussion of legal and economic issues central to consumer class actions, including:

  • Clarifying legal requirements for damages in false advertising class actions 
  • Demystifying direct and conjoint surveys
  • Understanding limitations of hedonic regression to estimate “but-for” prices

Registration and Breakfast: 8:00 am
Seminar: 8:30-9:30 am
