Arnstein & Lehr Chicago Partner John L. Ropiequet delivered two presentations at the Winter Meeting of the ABA Consumer Financial Services Committee in Park City, Utah on January 9. The first presentation, entitled “Wal-Mart v. Dukes – How Much of a Hazard to Class Certification in Financial Services Cases?” explored whether the Supreme Court’s Dukes case sounded the death knell for fair lending class actions based on alleged pricing discrimination and the implications of the decision for federal fair lending enforcement actions. The second presentation, “Professional Ethical Challenges Presented by the Robo-Signing Crisis,” discussed the serious and widespread lapses in professional ethics manifested in the robo-signing phenomenon, the risks to legal professionals, and what can be done about them.
