Beginning today, SCOTUSblog is hosting a symposium on the future of class action lawsuits. From the introductory post:
In the wake of several recent decisions from the Court – such as Wal-Mart v. Dukes, AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion, and Smith v. Bayer– involving class actions, SCOTUSblog has solicited posts from experts in the field to the effects that these decisions (as well as others relating to class actions) will have on cases that are currently pending in the lower courts, as well as the future of class action lawsuits more generally.
We are grateful to our contributors, who are listed below, for their hard work:
- Sergio Campos, University of Miami School of Law
- Sarah Crawford, National Partnership for Women and Families
