Washington, D.C. litigation counsel Nina Rose spoke during a Strafford webinar titled "Defeating Class Claims by Attacking the Pleadings and Leveraging Other Early Dispositive Motions" on March 29. The webinar provided guidance for defeating class claims by strategically attacking the pleadings or leveraging other dispositive motions, including summary judgment motions and motions to deny certification. The panelists discussed their perspectives on whether the pleading stage is too early to challenge class claims, when it is appropriate to use other early dispositive motions, how early in a case plaintiffs have a right to discovery and which arguments are appropriate early in the case.
