Using the Internet to Improve Class Actions

With two accomplices, Drug and Device Blogger and Curmudgeon Mark Herrmann recently published "Making Class Actions Work:  The Untapped Potential of the Internet" in the Pittsburgh Law Review. Download the article here.   A brief abstract follows:

In the article, Herrmann, his colleague Brad Harrison, and his former colleague (and now Dean of the Lewis & Clark Law School) Bob Klonoff first canvas the current uses of the internet in class action litigation. The authors go on to propose ways that the internet can be used to improve class action procedure in the future. Among other proposals, they suggest creating a centralized website that contains all information about pending federal class action lawsuits, webcasting certain class action proceedings, and using the internet to facilitate two-way communications between absent class members, counsel, and the court.
