McGlinchey partner (and CAFA Law Blog co-executive editor) Anthony Rollo and McGlinchey associate (and CAFA Law Blog Associate Editor) Gabe Crowson have published a two part article on the Class Action Fairness Act, which appears in Volume 8, Issue 17 (March 9, 2005) of the Consumer Financial Services Law Report, published by LPR Publications. The article, the first of a two part article, is entitled “The Newly Enacted Class Action Fairness Act,” and is an overview of CAFA, which became effective on February 18, 2005. Part 1 focuses on the various components of the Act, including a discuission of the minimal diversity standards, the new liberalized removal rules and appeals of removal decisions.

McGlinchey Stafford is proud of Tony and Gabe and their good efforts. Stay tuned to the CAFA Law Blog for Part 2 — coming soon.
