About this title


Class action law suits abound, but what is their purpose, and who benefits? This independent look at class action practices discusses the history of such cases, the driving forces behind them, and the justice or protection that their settlement provides. A comprehensive picture of class action suits in the 1990s comes to life in 10 fascinating case studies that will make you question whether the plaintiff attorneys, the defendants, the consumers or the public were fairly served.

From the Publisher:

This document summarizes the major findings and recommendations of our book-length study of class actions, Class Action Dilemmas: Pursuing Public Goals for Private Gain, a work that represents the product of more than three years' research into the current policy controversy over classaction lawsuits for money damages. In the interests of producing a summary that can be quickly read by policymakers and others, wefocus here on findings and recommendations that we believe will contribute most to ongoing discussions about how and whether Rule 23 and other rules relevant to class actions should be amended. Consequently, we have made only passing mention of some features of the complete manuscript. For example, in the course of the research, we conducted ten intensive case studies of recently settled class action lawsuits. Although the summary contains information derived from this portion of our research, it includes few details about the cases themselves. The full book contains a narrative of each of the case studies as well as a comparative analysis of them. Similarly, this summary makes only a few references to the cases, court documents, and other published materials that we consulted during our research, which are extensively documented in the book.For information about the Institute for Civil Justice, contactBeth Giddens, Communications DirectorInstitute for Civil JusticeRAND1700 Main Street, P.O.
