The Class Action Playbook is a unique and strategic "how to" guide for practitioners seeking to bring or defend a class action. Every important issue is addressed, including the initial shape of the proposed action, choice of forum, case-management schedules, pre-certification discovery and motions activity, briefing and argument of the class-certification motion, class notice, preparation for trial, class settlements, and the binding effects of class-action judgments.

Experienced practitioners Brian Anderson and Andrew Trask analyze what decisions the plaintiff and defendant must make at each stage of a proposed class action, and the considerations that might drive different strategies at each stage. The authors explain the importance of every issue, the choices available to each side, and the factors each side should consider in choosing the best path to follow.

The Class Action Playbook also contains a CD-ROM appendix of high-quality example documents used by plaintiffs and defendants in the litigation of each stage of a class action.

Review:

"Class Action Playbook is an important and well written addition to the literature on class actions, especially for those in the trenches who want a concise, useful, and authoritative guide." --Robert Klonoff, Dean & Professor of Law, Lewis & Clark Law School "With the claims of class action plaintiffs under scrutiny and the coffers of class action defendants under stress now as never before, Trask and Anderson's groundbreaking study of class action practice is timely. Using behavioral psychology, strategic economics and even game theory to explain the behavior of class litigants and their counsel, they work in -- and, frankly, have done no small honor to -- the best tradition of scholars like Sunstein and Viscusi. This is an essential volume for anyone who wants to understand American mass litigation." --Garrett Wotkyns, Schneider Wallace Cottrell Brayton Konecky LLP "Anderson and Trask have crafted a very helpful guide for any class action practitioner-plaintiff and defense counsel alike. Any lawyer called upon to prosecute or defend Rule 23 proceedings will benefit from the strategies discussed and practical advice rendered in this Playbook" --J. Andrew Lagan, Class Action Defense Lawyer "Brian Anderson's and Andrew Trask's new book, The Class Action Playbook, arrived in the mail yesterday, and instantly became the best practitioners' guide to class actions out there: I would definitely go to Anderson-Trask now before I go to the often sloppy Newberg treatise. My major complaint is that it wasn't out a month ago when I could have cited it in my Ninth Circuit briefing." --Ted Frank, Center for Class Action Fairness Point of Law Blog "It's clear after just a few pages that the authors are eloquent writers who know their way around a class action...Aside from being an accessible and comprehensive practitioner's guide to litigating class actions, the book is filled with entertaining quips and ill
