One of the most diverse leadership teams in multidistrict litigation has been chosen to pilot dozens of class actions against Blackbaud over its 2020 data breach. U.S. District Judge J. Michelle Childs of the District of South Carolina, who has been mentioned as a possible contender for a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court, appointed eight women and four men Feb. 16, making good on a promise to take into account diversity. One of the appointees was Marlon Kimpson, a Black lawyer who is a member of Motley Rice, and a state senator in South Carolina.
