logointvwFINAL-300x300We have a very lively episode this month – the highlight being an interview with Dana Kravetz, an employment law expert, looking at the recent Supreme Court decision on what is being called the biggest class-action sex-discrimination case in over 50 years. Dana adds to this discussion with his prediction of the implications this case will have on similar employment and potential class-action lawsuits against big employers in the future.

In our “In the News,” segment we feature a recent news headline from Thomson Reuters News & Insight about a growing trend that has some of the biggest U.S. law firms taking their practice abroad.

We also have our regular features, including “On the Blawgs” which features a post from 3 Geeks and a Law Blog on why adults feel entitled to acquire the newest technology and how to use it both efficiently and effectively. And in “Chaos in the Courts” we have an amusing story about a woman who claims she was a victim of peanut butter assault.

You can listen to the episode now by clicking the Play button on the built-in player below, or listen later.

We’re also on iTunes (just enter “Legal Current” in the search box).
