Azari will speak on a panel titled, “The New Outlook for Automotive Class Action Litigation: Coattails, Recalls, and Loss of Value/Diminution Cases”. In this session, attendees will review:

- The nature of class action claims based on safety, critical architecture, code, or process
- How automotive settlements are administered, including the latest court requirements for settlement approval
