Prof. Stephen Shapiro Publishes on the CAFA

Prof. Shapiro recently published an article titled Applying the Jurisdictional Provisions of the Class Action Fairness Act of 2005: In Search of a Sensible Judicial Approach, 59 Baylor L. Rev. 77.  The article discusses the "procedural issues involved in making the determination of whether a class action should be remanded to state court or remain in federal court" and argues that "to accomplish Congress's stated goal of allocating cases of an interstate nature to federal courts and truly local cases to state courts, the federal courts must not impose unreasonable or impossible standards of proof for plaintiffs to meet." --RR
