California: appeals of class certifications



The Civil Justice Association of California is promoting AB 1905, a bill in Sacramento that would provide defendants an interlocutory right of appeal against rulings certifying class actions. "Current law only allows the plaintiff to appeal the denial of class certification. The defendant can only appeal the judge's ruling after the class action lawsuit is complete and the defendant has lost -- a long and costly endeavor. ...This bill would bring the same balance to class action litigation that exists in federal courts and many states."
