Since the original publication of A Practitioner's Guide to Class Actions, the U.S. Supreme Court decided Wal-Mart Corporation v. Dukes--and has continued to decide class action issues each year. Those decisions have had a trickle-down effect on the federal circuit and district courts, as well as the jurisprudence of the many states. As a much-needed current resource for practitioners, this completely updated, comprehensive guide provides in-depth knowledge of the many intricacies of a class action lawsuit along with a valuable, state-by-state analysis of the ways in which the class action rules differ from the Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 23. Most chapters have been substantially rewritten due to the massive changes in the class action and multidistrict litigation landscape since 2010. The book's chapters are written by experienced practitioners with established practices in the area of class action law. This edition is now published in two volumes and organized in three sections for ease of reference: Anatomy of a Class Action and Special Issues in Class Actions comprise Volume 1, and the Jurisdictional Survey of Local Requirements Governing Class Actions is featured in Volume 2. Topics covered include: - Precertification- Ethical and practical issues of communications with members of a class- Interlocutory appeals- Settlements- Claims administration- The Class Action Fairness Act- Bankruptcy and class actions- Arbitration- State-by-state survey of requirements governing class actions, and more
