Labor Day is almost here, and if you’re like us at the CAFA Law Blog, you’re probably looking for some good reading material to take with you on your end-of-summer vacation, as you sit on the beach, sipping margaritas.  Well, have no fear . . . have we got some good ones for you! 

Are you craving excitement, adventure, mystery and an over-all good read, but you’re tired of the same old romance novels, the Harry Potter books have lost their appeal and all US Weekly seems to care about is who Jon, from Jon and Kate Plus 8, is dating?  Then sink your teeth into any one of these thrilling, exhilarating, fun-filled articles, devoted, naturally, to the subject of Class Actions and CAFA. 

By the way . . . not to toot our own horns, but the featured article below was written by the world renowned big daddy of all things CAFA (at least to us at the CAFA Law Blog), Hunter Twiford.
