Summary
The future of aggregation is uncertain. Recent cases have established limits on class actions as devised for national resolution of mass tort claims. In the evolving world of mass tort litigation, once thing is for certain: lawyers and judges have to ensure that the resolution of these cases is fair to the individual litigants on both sides. For that reason, the analysis of the five settlement class action cases contained herein will continue to be relevant to mass tort litigation - and to other class-action litigation - no matter what twists and turns the ongoing debate may take. Through analysis of five mass tort cases, this monograph explores such questions as: Should discovery be allowed into arguably secret settlement negotiations when the negotiations represent tens of thousands, or even millions of individuals? Should judges conduct proceedings in the nature of trials to review the merits of the proposed settlement? Who should get what kind of notice at whose expense? How should judges assess the adequacy of class representatives and counsel?
