Statistical Analysis And Class Actions: Part 3
May 29, 2015
This article from Law360 by Dr. Nathan Woods, a partner at Edgeworth, is the third article in a three part series discussing the statistical analysis of class certification topics in wage-and-hour class and collective actions.
In “Statistical Analysis And Class Actions: Part 3” Dr. Woods discusses the use of sampling in analysis of class certification. He examines several landmark cases to explain the current trend of greater scrutiny in class and collective action litigation. He also discusses how sampling efforts can follow this trend and provide more thorough conclusions by using superior, detailed sampling sets rather than a single, simple random framework.
