I just received my quarterly issue of the ABA Class Actions and Derivative Suits Committee (CADS) Newsletter. The Winter 2009 issue features several articles on trends in international class action law, highlighted by Class Actions San Frontiers, an article authored by three Canadian panelists from a presentation of the same name from November’s ABA National Institute on Class Actions, David I.W. Hamer, Sylvie Rodrique, and Charles M. Wright. The article outlines recent trends in litigation involving concurrent class action and mass tort litigation in the U.S. and Canada.
Unfortunately, the report is only currently available in paper form. Presumably, an electronic version should be available soon to CADS members on the newsletter web page.
