John A. Kehoe, Esq. Presents at “2017 IPPFA Illinois Pension Conference”
On May 4, 2017, John A. Kehoe, Esq. presented at the “2017 IPPFA Illinois Pension Conference” held at Eaglewood Resort & Spa in Itasca, IL. John’s presentation focused on significant new restrictions that would be imposed on Rule 23 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure through H.R. 985, the Class Action Fairness Act of 2017, placing unreasonable restraints on misled investors and their class-action lawyers. As the Council for Institutional Investors expressed in a March 9, 2017 letter to Representatives Paul D. Ryan and Nancy Pelosi, “[w]e believe this unwarranted change would unreasonably preclude many meritorious securities class action lawsuits to the detriment of long-term investors, including retirees and other fund beneficiaries, and the U.S. capital markets generally.” The IPPFA (Illinois Public Pension Fund Association), founded in 1985, is a not-for-profit umbrella organization representing police and fire defined benefit retirement funds in the State of Illinois.
