Practitioner's guide to class actions
1354 pages. Updated by new edition.
Class action suits are complicated by the fact that state rules regarding them differ as you move from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. The ABA’s Practitioner’s guide to class actions aims to simplify understanding these differences by providing a state-by-state analysis of how these rules differ from the standard FRCP. Other sections of the guide cover class action criteria and provide examples of unique problems in class action litigation. Certification, ethics, settlements, arbitration, and claims administration are also discussed.
