The opportunity to curl up with an entire law review symposium on CAFA causes us to start humming the music to Will Smith’s Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It. You don’t have to admit it, but you know we know you feel the same way too. The Loyola of Los Angeles Law Review has published an issue containing five articles all about CAFA. The title of their new issue is Developments in the Law: The Class Action Fairness Act of 2005. It is Volume 39 ,No. 3 published in September of 2006.
The Foreward is by Georgene M. Vairo. The articles are:
Removal, Remand, and Other Procedural Issues Under the Class Action Fairness Act of 2005 by Lauren D. Fredricks
Plaintiffs’ Paradise Lost: Diversity of Citizenship and Amount in Controversy Under the Class Action Fairness Act of 2005 by Cameron Fredman
Once More Into the Breach, Dear Friends: the Case for Congressional Revision of the Mass Actions Provisions in the Class Action Fairness Act of 2005 by S. Amy Spencer
New Rules for Class-Action Settlements: the Consumer Class Action Bill of Rights by Jennifer Gibson
The Class Action Fairness Act of 2005: a First Year Retrospective Review by Lonny Sheinkopf Hoffman. (Editors’ Note: Professor Lonny Hoffman is one of favorite authors on CAFA issues. See the CAFA Law Blog analysis of his recent law review article on commencement issues and his guest post on the CAFA Law Blog on commencement issues.)
The great feature about this book is that all of the articles are available on-line in full text version. We know you can’t wait to give these a read. Here’s the link to the online table of contents.
