Class Action Magnet Courts: The Allure Intensifies

An update of their earlier study, They're Making a Federal Case Out of It . . . In State Court, Beisner and Miller�s research examines class action filing trends in Madison County, Illinois in 2001 and early 2002 and finds that the county continues to be a magnet court jurisdiction drawing an increasing and disproportionate number of multi-state and nationwide class action filings.
