Suggested Articles from 2011

Here is a non-definitive list of articles published in 2011 that I can recommend.  If there are others our readers wish to recommend, or if I missed your excellent article, send along a recommendation! (Note that articles posted to SSRN but not yet published aren't listed here)

The Top Mass Tort Articles (...drumroll please...):

Symposium on Aggregate Litigation, 79 Geo. Wash. L. Rev.  (2011)

Howard Erichson & Benjamin Zipursky, Consent versus Closure, 96 Cornell L. Rev. 265 (2011)

Charles Silver, The Responsibilities of Lead Lawyers and Judges in Multidistrict Litigations, 79 Fordham L. Rev. 1985 (2011)

Articles I plan to read (so can't yet evaluate but think they look good)

Edward F. Sherman, The BP Oil Spill Litigation and Evolving Supervision of Multidistrict Litigation Judges, 30 Miss. C. L. Rev.237 (2011)

Byron Stier, The Gulf Coast Claims Facility as Quasi-Public Fund: Transparency and Independence in Claim Adminsitrator Compensation, 30 Miss. C. L. Rev. 255 (2011)

Alexandra Rothmann, Note: Bringing an End to the Trend: Cutting Judicial "Approval" and "Rejection" Out of Non Class Settlement, 80 Fordham L. Rev. 319 (2011)

David Marcus, Flawed but Noble: Desegregation Litigation and its Implications for the Modern Class Action, 63 Fla. L. Rev. 657 (2011)

Not quite about mass torts, not at all class actions, but also recommended:

Benjamin Ewing and Douglas Kysar, Prods and Pleas: Limited Government in an Era of Unlimited Harm, 121 Yale L. J. 350 (2011)

Anthony J. Sebok, The Inauthentic Claim, 64 Vand. L. Rev. 61 (2011)
