On today’s agenda are discussions of proposed restatements on the law of nonprofit organizations, aggregate litigation (class actions) and restitution and unjust enrichment. Tonight is a black tie dinner at the Westin St. Francis.
There is one custom at this meeting that I have never seen at any meeting of lawyers I have ever attended. There are scores of federal and state judges here, but none of the name tags identify the judges as judges. Yesterday I was talking to the Chief Justice of New Zealand and had no idea that she was a judge.
I am expecting some interesting discussion during the aggregate litigation review today. This is a subject where passions tend to run high and my guess is the discussion will be a little more heated than that of yesterday.
