It extends the Statute of Limitations an additional 22 years so that victims of childhood sexual abuse can now initiate suit until age 55. It also allows a one year period for people older than 23 to file claims regardless of age, allowing claims that had previously been dismissed as untimely to be re-filed and re-litigated. Every school in New York is now vulnerable to decades-old lawsuits they may never have known existed. However, those lawsuits can only be commenced six months after the effective date of the legislation. Complaints can be filed commencing on August 14, 2019. This webinar will explain the Act, its ramifications, and what you need to be thinking about now to best protect your institution.&nbsp;</p> <p> <a href="http://marketing.seyfarth.com/reaction/RSGenPage.asp?RSID=qlS_jn_r0NzQoNsho82aF_Vasv4Y1hUK5DNH_I-Q2JPCdU4tUQuvM2na6_-a4d7FRNOpsKEftA0qwIoGKGdECA&amp;RS_REFERRSID=qlS_jn_r0NzQoNsho82aF_Vasv4Y1hUK5DNH_I-Q2JOcbWqxSN0fKcq4CRF3RJsXOz7owI9uqkIUuBcKfsMhpA&amp;RS_REFERRSTYPE=NO&amp;RS_ORIGRSID=qlS_jn_r0NzQoNsho82aF_Vasv4Y1hUK5DNH_I-Q2JOcbWqxSN0fKcq4CRF3RJsXOz7owI9uqkIUuBcKfsMhpA">Register Here</a></p> <div> <em>If you have any questions, please contact Danielle Freeman at <a href="mailto:dfreeman@seyfarth.com?subject=Seyfarth%20Webinar%3A%20The%20Significant%20Ramifications%20of%20New%20York%E2%80%99s%20Child%20Victim%20Act%3A%20What%20You%20Need%20to%20Know">dfreeman@seyfarth.com</a> and reference this event.</em></div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> *CLE Credit for this webinar has been awarded in the following states: CA, IL, NJ and NY.

Stanley is also editor of the firm&#39;s blog, The Blunt Truth, which addresses the legal and practical implications of cannabis laws across the U.S. and their impacts on the business community.</p> <p> The legalization of cannabis by states across the nation has led to a significant growth in the production and distribution of legal marijuana and an explosion of related service providers, including marketers, sellers of paraphernalia and bankers. The laws vary greatly from state to state and the sale of cannabis is still illegal under federal law. This comprehensive program on cannabis law will introduce the most relevant issues and practical solutions, including criminal, FDA, federal vs. state, investment issues, litigation, banking, money laundering, commercial, and licensing. It will also cover the changes and progress on the latest legal developments and future regulations for medical marijuana licenses and distribution.

For an interactive analysis of 2018 decisions and emerging trends in 2019, please join us for our annual webinar. The developing trends in workplace class action litigation are continuing to evolve, morph, and adjust to the modern realities of the American workplace. These trends require corporate counsel to plan and re-order their compliance strategies to stay ahead of and mitigate these risks and exposures in the coming year.<br /> <br /> The Report&rsquo;s author, Gerald L. Maatman, Jr., along with Lorie Almon, co-chair of our wage &amp; hour group, Ian Morrison, co-chair of our ERISA class action group, and Brett Bartlett, co-chair of the wage &amp; hour group, will cover this changed national landscape in workplace class action litigation. In our workplace class action webinar, highlights from the Report will outline a number of key trends for employers, including:<br /> <br /> <strong>SCOTUS Takes Center Stage</strong>: As predicted in Seyfarth&rsquo;s 2018 Report, the U.S. Supreme Court continued to play an unusually active role in reshaping employment law and class action dynamics during the past year with several key opinions. The <em>Epic Systems </em>ruling, which upheld the legality of class action waivers in mandatory arbitration agreements, has proven transformative for employers and marks it as one of the most important SCOTUS decision for employers in nearly two decades. Following the appointments of Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, the class action playing field for employers may shift even further in 2019.<br /> <br /> <strong>Plaintiffs&rsquo; Win Percentage For Certification Success Reaches Record Level</strong>: The plaintiffs&rsquo; bar posted a record high certification success rate in 2018, our Report&rsquo;s 15th year, winning 79% of their motions to certify class and collective actions in the largest category of workplace litigation: wage &amp; hour litigation. Employer efforts to successfully decertify these cases also dropped by 11% as employers won only 52% of &ldquo;second stage&rdquo; decertification rulings, down from 63% in 2017.<br /> <br /> <strong>Government Enforcement Litigation Hits Three-Year High But Settlement Payouts Drop Sharply</strong>: Despite the transition to a more business friendly Trump Administration, government enforcement litigation rose again to a new three-year high in 2018. The EEOC filed 199 lawsuits last year, up from 184 in 2017 but the value of the top government settlements cratered, dropping from $485.25 million in 2017 to $126.7 million in 2018.<br /> <br /> <strong>Class Action Settlement Values Collapse</strong>: After reaching an all-time record high of $2.72 billion in 2017, the monetary value of the top workplace class action settlements decreased by more than 50% in 2018. Settlements sank to a five-year low of $1.32 billion in 2018, experiencing a record one-year drop of $1.4 billion. Even with a better success rate in 2018, settlements shrank across the board as plaintiffs failed to monetize class action victories at the same rate as 2017.<br /> <br /> <strong>Impact Of The #MeToo Movement:</strong> This past year provided the first annual look at how the #MeToo movement is gaining momentum in workplace litigation. In particular, 74% of the U.S. EEOC&rsquo;s Title VII filings this past year targeted sex-based discrimination, up from 65% in 2017. Also rising were the EEOC&rsquo;s 2018 sex discrimination lawsuits including claims of sexual harassment, which grew to 41 lawsuits, up from 33 in 2017.<br /> &nbsp;</p> <p> <u><strong>Workplace Class Action Litigation Report</strong></u></p> <div> The uncertainty of a new administration that plagued 2017 failed to materialize in 2018, with EEOC filings and litigation unexpectedly increasing, even as overall settlements dropped. Fueled by key Supreme Court rulings and the Me Too movement, 2019 is likely to present employers with more complex challenges than ever before.</div> <div> &nbsp;</div> <div> To help businesses navigate this changing landscape, we have created the 2019 Seyfarth Shaw Annual Workplace Class Action Litigation Report. In this year&rsquo;s Report, a team of Seyfarth lawyers analyzed 1,453 class action rulings on a circuit-by-circuit and state-by-state basis to capture key themes from 2018 and emerging litigation trends facing U.S. companies in 2019.</div> <div> <p style="margin-bottom:12.0pt;line-height:120%"> <span style="font-family:&quot;Arial&quot;,sans-serif; color:black"><a href="https://www.workplaceclassactionreport.com">Visit our Workplace Class Action Litigation Report page.</a><o:p></o:p></span></p> <a href="http://marketing.seyfarth.com/reaction/RSGenPage.asp?RSID=sF2PVE5nECEEnpnkbJBaVL0WjueNDGD_Xu4dZUTcwGbbpt7dxtpbZpmb1yp1bhE6&amp;RS_REFERRSID=sF2PVE5nECEEnpnkbJBaVJupM-NA3-qud7VDcEGPOatJbQ9y1Rrl2HvqV29KZihP&amp;RS_REFERRSTYPE=NO&amp;RS_ORIGRSID=sF2PVE5nECEEnpnkbJBaVJupM-NA3-qud7VDcEGPOatJbQ9y1Rrl2HvqV29KZihP">Request the eBook Here</a>.&nbsp;<br /> &nbsp;</div> <p> <em>*CLE Credit for this webinar has been awarded in the following states: CA, IL, NJ and NY.

Nine states and Washington DC have a gone &quot;all-in&quot; on legalized, recreational marijuana, and to date 30 states have legalized medical marijuana use. A recent Gallup poll showed that 64% of Americans favor legalization. Canada has also recently legalized recreational marijuana. As the tides change, attorneys need to be aware of the hot button legal issues that are pervasive in the burgeoning cannabis industry, which remains at odds with federal law making the use, possession and distribution of marijuana illegal.
