David Herr, an appellate attorney in Maslon's Litigation Group, will serve as a panelist for a session titled "Case Management Strategies by Transferee Judges" at The George Washington University School of Law's Multi-district Litigation Roundtable. The roundtable discussion features over 40 federal judges, professors, and leading practicing attorneys to discuss the many legal and policy issues which surround the decisions of the Multi-district Litigation (MDL) Panel and the manner in which transferee judges are managing the thousands of cases that have been transferred to them for pre-trial purposes.
David is a highly regarded appellate lawyer and complex case litigator. He is frequently sought out to provide practical and sophisticated advice on how to resolve difficult, multi-party disputes in trial courts and arbitral forums as well as in the appellate courts. David is past president of the American Academy of Appellate Lawyers, past president of the Academy of Court Appointed Masters, and regularly argues cases in the Minnesota appellate courts and the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals. He has authored two publications—the 2016 edition of the Multidistrict Litigation Manual: Practice Before the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation and the 2016 edition of the Annotated Manual for Complex Litigation Fourth—both published by Thomson West. David was recently presented with the Francis McGovern Writing Award by the Academy of Court-Appointed Masters.
