Yes, I admit that I took a far-too-extended break from this blog without getting your permission. I've missed you. In some other posts, I will report on what I did on my summer vacation.
But I'm back, baby!
I look forward to posting some more fulsome materials later. But today I'm in lovely New Orleans at the Annual Meeting of the Defense Research Institute. There have been some fantastic presentations here at this conference. I am getting ready to experience my 15 minutes (literally) of fame delivering a short speech on class action settlements at 4:30 p.m. You can view my PowerPoint -- because really, who could possibly consider giving a speech without having a bunch of slides to preoccupy one's bored listeners? -- by clicking here.
I had written an article on the same subject just a few weeks ago in the National Law Journal.
