"Cy Pres: A Not So Charitable Contribution to Class Action Practice"
I'm honored that Skadden's John Beisner, one of the world's leading class action attorneys, Jessica Miller, and Jordan Schwartz today released a new paper on cy pres that heavily relies upon my work and the work of the Center for Class Action Fairness in the AOL case, even singling out that case as an example of abusive cy pres. We'll be sure to cite it in a couple of upcoming objections involving improper cy pres. (And welcome to all the O'Melveny attorneys reading this site since my letter to counsel for Apple regarding the improper cy pres settlement in that case!)
