McLaughlin on class actions : law and practice

by Joseph McLaughlin. Thomson West. 8th edition. 2011.
2 volumes.

This two volume set does not reach the detail of Newberg of Class Actions, but it provides an excellent discussion of the current law on class actions. The impact of the “Class Action Fairness Act” and the amendments to the FRCP 23 are covered in depth. Attention is given to recent developments in state and federal case law. The authors note that their coverage is geared to judges and practitioners. The text provides an in-depth explanation of the law as well as strategic guidance on evaluating and developing a class action and pursuing the action through trial and subsequent appeals. A chapter is also devoted to settlement considerations.
