Brenden Coller, a member of Cozen O'Connor's Commercial Litigation department, will be presenting "Debating Why the Issue of Ascertainaiblity is So Important in Defending Your Case." Set up as a moot court, you will witness some of plaintiffs’ most persuasive arguments for, and the most strategic ways defendants attack ascertainability in the class certification phase of food-related consumer class actions.

Topics Include:

  • 3rd Circuit – Carrera v. Bayer: should classes whose membership cannot be determined flunk the ascertainability requirement and therefore not be certified
  • 9th Circuit – Jones v. Conagra: should the ascertainability requirement be either eliminated from the class certification analysis or substantially relaxed in order to clear the runway for consumer class actions
  • POM Wonderful – is it possible to reliably determine who purchased Defendant’s products or when they did so
