Federalist Society Class Action Watch

The latest Class Action Watch from the Federalist Society is out:

In this issue, Ted Frank looks at the issues surrounding “the Vioxx class actions” against the drug company Merck,
which have continued to mestastasize since the recall this fall. Margaret Little considers the wider ramifi cations of the indictment of Milberg Weiss, the nation’s largest class action firm. David Owsiany reviews the Ohio controversy, in which a class action fi rm was recently and for the first time barred from a court over deceitful representation in an asbestos litigation case. John Shu
provides an overview of the late Verizon settlement, one of the largest in American history. Tara Fumerton weighs a possible trend in Illinois supreme court rulings, and two of our members ask whether the welding fume litigation has come to an end.
