California class action initiative

The Civil Justice Association of California has decided not to proceed this year with a ballot initiative intended to bring the state's class action procedures closer to the federal CAFA model. Trial-lawyer-allied groups had boasted of putting pressure on the Intel Corp., a CJAC supporter, with threats to attack the company as anti-minority because of the supposedly discriminatory impact of regulating class action procedure. Among the iniquitous elements of the initiative, according to one such account, was a provision "requiring evidence of wrongdoing before a case can move forward". And you wouldn't want that, would you?
