Lane Powell Shareholder Rudy Englund will present at an International Association of Defense Counsel webinar titled“Rule 68 Offers to ‘Pick-off’ the Named-Plaintiff: Legal Update, Tactics and Best Practice” on December 17. The webinar will take place from 12-1 p.m. and will focus on the background and history of Symczyk v. Genesis Healthcare Corp., which was argued to the United States Supreme Court on December 3. The Supreme Court’s decision will clarify and resolve the split of authority amongst several of the Circuits regarding Rule 68 Offers of Judgment in Fair Labor Standards Act collective actions, specifically as such offers relate to issues of mootness and the “case or controversy” requirement of Article III of the United States Constitution.
