MANAGING CLASS ACTIONS AND COMPLEX LITIGATION—A VIEW FROM THE BENCH

By Jill M. Manning1

In 2018, the Golden State Instituted continued the tradition of hosting a panel of judges with backgrounds and experiences managing class actions, antitrust cases, and other complex litigation. Three distinguished Northern District of California jurists—Judge William H. Alsup, Judge Edward M. Chen, and Magistrate Judge Laurel Beeler—offered their insights and perspectives on these issues in a panel discussion moderated by Jill Manning.

MS. MANNING: Good afternoon. My name is Jill Manning, and I am honored to be here today to serve as the moderator of this distinguished panel of federal judges from the Northern District of California, all of whom have a wealth of knowledge and experience in managing complex and class-action litigation.

To my immediate right, please welcome Judge William Alsup. Judge Alsup graduated from Harvard Law School and served as a law clerk to Justice William O. Douglas of the United States Supreme Court. He worked in private practice in San Francisco and as an assistant to the United States Solicitor General in the United States Department ofJustice. He briefly served as special counsel in the antitrust division of the Department ofJustice. He was nominated by President Bill Clinton to a seat on the United States District Court for the Northern District of California, the seat vacated by Thelton Henderson in 1999. Welcome, Judge Alsup.
