When state AGs attack



O'Melveny & Myers's Brian Anderson and Amber Taylor, in Legal Times. Summary: "As traditional class actions become a less reliable tactic for attacking business interests, a new one has emerged. Instead of finding a class to represent, plaintiffs lawyers are representing some state attorneys general in cases brought on behalf of the states and their citizens. The resulting lawsuit can pose a new and dangerous threat to defendants. But such lawsuits also have unique vulnerabilities."
