Andrew M. Low, Class Action Appeals, 35 Colorado Lawyer 85, June 2006.

In “Class Action Appeals,” the author spins a short story (reminiscent of Prof. James W. McElhaney’s litigation articles in the ABA Journal) involving a softball game, a surprise softball talent – although no Roy Hobbs, and a lesson on appealing class action certifications under FRCP 23. This short, entertaining read is a quick diversion, and offers a review of federal appellate court interpretation of newly amended Rule 23(f); particularly, the Seventh Circuit’s recent opinions in In re Bridgestone/Firestone, Inc. Tires Products Liability Litigation, 288 F.3d 1012 (7th Cir. 2002), and Blair v. Equifax Check Services, Inc., 181 F.3d 832 (7th cir. 1999).
