Jurisdiction Under Class Action Law

The Class Action Fairness Act allows defendants to remove class actions to federal court under certain circumstances. See Third Circuit Weighs In On Burden Of Proof Under CAFA, Consumer Law & Policy Blog, Dec. 18, 2006, for a discussion of a case holding that the defendant has the burden of proof to show that the jurisdictional requirements are met.

Speaking of CAFA, the Loyola of Los Angeles Law Review has a symposium on it. For link and list of articles, see Just What You're Hankerin' For: A Bevy of Articles About CAFA, Consumer Law & Policy Blog, Dec. 14, 2006.
