Chicago Tribune on class actions

Last March the Chicago Tribune ran a major investigation of class actions which does much to show why the Class Action Fairness Act commanded such strong bipartisan support. Here's the lead story; a table of results in several class actions, some relatively good, others unsettling; and a story on the "lawsuit capital", Madison County. We've also mentioned the paper's excellent editorials on the subject; see Jul. 7. By the way, and by contrast, the New York Times's latest dyspeptic editorial rant on the bill's passage is here.
