Welcome to Critical MassLaw.com’s weekly briefing for class action and mass tort attorneys. This is Michael Riccardi, filling in for Amanda Bronstad, who has the week off. The California State Bar and attorneys from Edelson PC were turned aside, at least for now, in their objections to a conservatorship over embattled trial lawyer Tom Girardi. And a team led by lawyers from South Florida and Utah have been named to pilot a proposed class action over stock price fluctuations of a company making COVID-19 tests. Also, the book is closed on the first Roundup products liability verdict, with Bayer announcing it wouldn’t seek review from the U.S. Supreme Court.

Feel free to reach out to Amanda with your input. You can email me at [email protected], or follow me on Twitter@abronstadlaw.
