Lawsuit Growth in 2008

Articles in the ABA Section of Litigation's Litigation News and the Baltimore Business Journal summarize the 2009 Law360 Litigation Almanac.  Among the federal-court findings: class actions rose 8% (reaching an all-time high); product liability litigation increased 20%; federal environmental lawsuits went up for the first time since 2005; and, in contrast, securities litigation dropped by 8%.

My family opted out of the Louisiana Class to have our case heard in Mississippi reason being that Vicksburg Chemical was from Vicksburg, Mississippi. The class trial failed but Vicksburg settled. http://www.mftms13.wordpress.com
