Jeff Bezos sold his first book on Amazon.com way back in 1995. (It was a copy of 'Fluid Concepts and Creative Analogies: Computer Models of the Fundamental Mechanisms of Thought' -- not exactly a best seller.) A decade later, Amazon topped a hundred billion dollars in revenue, fueled by the sale of everything from toilet paper to washing machines (and yes, books on computer modeling, too). It's not just Amazon that's benefited from online ordering. Spending on e-Commerce is expected to surpass more than $2 trillion in sales in the near future.
With e-Commerce exploding, litigation over e-Commerce disputes is also increasing. But e-Commerce litigation isn't like any other commercial litigation. It presents unique challenges, issues that you won't often encounter in lawsuits involving "brick and mortar" commerce. Thankfully, the Rutter Group's "Traversing the Challenges of e-Commerce Litigation in Federal Court" can help you identify important issues and avoid common pitfalls in internet-based commercial litigation. (Disclosure: The Rutter Group is part of Thomson Reuters, FindLaw's parent company.)
Learning e-Commerce Litigation From the Best
Litigation involving e-Commerce presents unique challenges on multiple fronts, from subject matter and personal jurisdiction to service of process to navigating online privacy statutes. What's more, it's an area of law that's evolving just as the markets and technology evolve, as the Supreme Court's recent Spokeo decision reminds us. As a result, even experienced litigators need the occasional refresher.
The Rutter Group's e-Commerce litigation program is perfectly geared to helping California attorneys meet these e-Commerce challenges. Highlights include how to establish the domicile of e-Commerce parties for diversity jurisdiction purposes, measuring standing in data breach cases, the use of civil subpoenas with internet service providers, and more.
This program also features experts in e-Commerce and California's federal courts. Presenters include Judge Beverly Reid O'Connell and Magistrate Judge Karen L. Stevenson, both of the Central District of California, and Tanya Forsheit, co-chair of the privacy and data security group at Frankfurt Kurnit Klein & Selz. Together, these three women have years of experience with federal e-Commerce litigation.
Special Perks for Enrollees
In addition to the exceptional content and great presenters, the 2017 e-Commerce litigation program comes with a few extra bonuses. Enrollees can purchase the Rutter Group's famous Practice Guides for special discounted prices. The three-volume Practice Guide "Federal Civil Procedure Before Trial" will be available for $343.50, down from a regular price of $687.
The Rutter Group's Practice Guide "Federal Civil Trials and Evidence" can be purchased for $340.50, half of its regular $681 price. Finally, the "Federal Ninth Circuit Civil Appellate Practice" Practice Guide is going for $299, instead of the regular $598. These Practice Guides are must haves, incredible resources for attorneys litigating in the federal courts, whether you're litigating e-Commerce disputes or not. And the massive price cuts mean you can make up the $160 enrollment cost from the savings of a single Practice Guide purchase.
With multiple programs held throughout California this March, and the opportunity to earn 3 hours of MCLE credit for attending, there's almost no reason not to sign up.
