Beasley Allen attorney Joseph H. (Jay) Aughtman will co-chair a new group established by the American Association for Justice – the Class Action Litigation Group. The AAJ is a professional legal association that works to promote a fair and effective justice system and to support the work of attorneys in their efforts to ensure that plaintiffs can receive justice in America’s courtrooms.

This is the first time the AAJ has established a specific Class Action Litigation Group nationally. Its first meeting will be held at the AAJ Winter Conference in New Orleans, La. The conference runs Feb. 7-11 and the CALG meeting will be held Feb. 8. In addition to a discussion of organization and goals for the new group, members will hear from two special guest speakers.

Ken Moscaret is a nationally recognized expert on the reasonableness of class action awards and attorney’s fees. He is perhaps best known for his work on the Enron case. He is widely regarded as one of the nation’s leading authorities on attorney’s fees.

Additionally, Arthur Bryan, executive director of Public Justice, will speak to the group about the cy pres awards, which are awards given to third parties to litigation usually in some type of charitable fashion. He is widely regarded as one of the best public interest and class action attorneys in the United States and has received numerous awards for his accomplishments.
