    • the first-to-file bar and public-disclosure bar;
    • Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 9(b);
    • statistical sampling; and
    • measurement of damages.
  • trends in settlements, by industry and type of claim;
  • legislative and regulatory changes at both the federal and state levels; and
