Misjoinder and Mass Torts

The folks over at Drug and Device Law (now under partially new management that apparently is more fond of literary allusions than the old) have an interesting post on misjoinder, for those of you interested in the real nitty gritty of procedure.  The bottom line: they are worried about plaintiffs who jigger their cases through joinder to avoid the federal courts' jurisdiction.  For those of you not into the technical aspects of procedure in complex litigation, there are lots of federalism issues raised by this as well.

The post is called Gresham's Lawyers and is available here.  ADL

It is now necessary to have proper way of finding the solution of this. I am sure it will make some useful difference.
