Description

In Class Actions : Five Principles To Promote Fairness and Efficiency, Jay Tidmarsh - - a professor of law at the Notre Dame Law School and former trial attorney in the Torts Branch of the U.S. Department of Justice - - presents a summation and critique of class -action law. As class actions continue to evolve in the United States and to spread around the world, it is critical for participants to understand what works and what doesn't work about group litigation, and for legislators and regulators to implement principles to encourage fairness and efficiency for all concerned. In this book, Tidmarsh describes five such principles, which provide a roadmap for improved class -action processes.
