Kentucky Supreme Court Forms Mass Tort & Class Action Committee

Kentucky Supreme Court Chief Justice Joseph E. Lambert has appointed 12 Kentucky attorneys to a "Mass Tort and Class Action Litigation Committee."  According to a press release, this committee  "will determine whether current court rules for attorneys and judges provide adequate safeguards against unethical conduct and whether rule changes may provide guidance to attorneys and courts dealing with complex litigation."   The Herald-Dispatch (via AP) reports that the Committee plans to forward recommendations for reform to the state Supreme Court within the next year.    According to the Herald-Dispatch story, Florida is also reviewing its procedures for mass torts.
