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 firm 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.
