France Postpones Action on Class Actions
The French National Assembly has cancelled plans for a parliamentary debate on whether to adopt a limited consumer class action mechanism for the French legal system. The proposal that was to be considered would allow suit to be brought only by a national consumer association for products or services with a value less than approximately $2500 and would have excluded health-related issues. The proposal appears unlikely to come up again before the national presidential and legislative elections later this year. It will then be up to the next government to decide whether to revive the proposal. See the Associated Press story.
