Class Actions 2020 Edition

Essential handbook about representing classes in a class action.

With high stakes and wide-spread impact, class action matters entail complex management from the very beginning. This handbook provides attorneys and judges with the most up-to-date research and valuable tips from experienced practitioners. It covers the entire process, from potential claims, discovery, and notice, through settlement, fees, and state practice. Further discussion of pleadings, motions, and orders; multidistrict actions; shareholder derivative suits; and the Class Action Fairness Act of 2005 round out this comprehensive guide. Also included is a thorough examination of Federal Rule of Procedure 23 focusing on its purposes and prerequisites. Class action notices under Rule 23, and settlement and discretionary notices under Rules 23(c) – 23(e) are also covered. A sample notice to client regarding retention of documents, sample protective order, sample form of stipulation of settlement, and sample final judgment and order of dismissal are among the forms provided in this useful resource.
