Breaking news: The Supreme Court today accepted certiorari in Mississippi ex rel. Hood v. AU Optronics Corp., Docket No. 12-1036. The court will take up the question of whether a state’s parens patriae action is removable as a “mass action” pursuant to the Class Action Fairness Act when the state is the sole plaintiff and the claims arise under state law. The Fifth Circuit has held that such a case is removable. The Fourth, Seventh, and Ninth Circuits have held that it is not.
