Rule 23: A primer

March 31st, 2017  |  Lisa Milam-Perez

One of the fun parts of my job is collaborating with the smart people at Jackson Lewis on its Class Action Trends Report. The newest issue has just been released. It’s a primer of sorts on Rule 23 written by lawyers in the firm’s Class Action & Complex Litigation Practice Group.

The issue takes a closer look at the fine points of Rule 23 and the procedural requirements for certifying a class, with an eye toward defeating class certification–which, as Jackson Lewis notes, “is where the most vigorous defense can reap the greatest reward.”

It’s an important time to stay abreast of Rule 23 and class action developments in general, with recent amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, and still more revisions in store. Also, Congress has just introduced legislation that would enact even more sweeping changes–a measure that has considerable prospects for success given our Republican-controlled everything. Jackson Lewis talks about these developments, too.
