The Class Action Chronicle - Fall 2013


This is the inaugural edition of The Class Action Chronicle, a quarterly publication that will provide analysis of recent class action trends, along with a summary of class certification and Class Action Fairness Act rulings issued during each quarter. Our publication is designed to keep both practitioners and clients up-to-date on class action developments in antitrust, mass torts/products liability, consumer fraud and other areas of law.

The Fall 2013 edition highlights the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit’s recent — and troubling — approval of issues classes as a means to facilitate class certification in cases where the requirements of Rule 23 are not met.
