April 30, 2018

Partner Craig Cardon comments on cy pres and the Google Class Action Case. "Cases would get abandoned, earlier rather than later, and corporate America will have another defense against being held liable," and, "Google gets away scot free." He describes cy pres as, "a very useful tool to get parties to a point where they can agree on something rather than racing toward trial," saying, "a tool can be used properly and can be used improperly."
