Gibbs Law Group’s A.J. de Bartolomeo will present on “Defendants’ Latest Tactics Against Your Class Representative” at the 12th Annual Class Action and Mass Tort Seminar hosted by Consumer Attorneys of California (CAOC). A.J. will discuss and provide real world examples illustrating the uptick in recent class action cases of defendants’ aggressive attempts to offensively question, increase the burden, invade financial privacy, and attack the credibility of class representatives (and at times class counsel), as well as practical tips and guidance for combating those efforts.
