McGlinchey Stafford’s CAFA Law Blog Celebrates Six Year AnniversaryRead Time: 1 min
November 8, 2011 – In August 2011, McGlinchey Stafford’s CAFA Law Blog (www.cafalawblog.com) celebrated six years of being the leading source for information, case analyses, and insights regarding the Class Action Fairness Act (CAFA). Launched in 2005 by McGlinchey Stafford class action defense lawyers Anthony Rollo and Hunter Twiford just months after the enactment of CAFA by Congress, the CAFA Law Blog, the first (and only) blog in the country dedicated to the Class Action Fairness Act, now boasts more than 700 original case summaries, links to copies of the cases, synopses of law review articles, and other important CAFA resources.
“We are very proud of the CAFA Law Blog and the growing success we’ve achieved by timely providing CAFA related information to our readers, and by using an informal, entertaining approach to presenting that information,” said Anthony Rollo, who also heads McGlinchey’s National Class Action Defense Group.
The CAFA Law Blog was created by Rollo and Twiford in 2005 to serve as the leading on-line repository for information concerning CAFA. Since the Blog’s inception, it has received numerous accolades, including recognition on TechnoLawyer’s list of the nation’s 77 most influential legal blogs of 2007 and feature stories in the National Law Journal and other publications as a national leader in law firm blogging.
The success of the Blog can be traced to its wealth of timely information on the Class Action Fairness Act, presented to readers through its unique non-legalistic, and often humorous writing style. Twiford said, “We’ve found our audience seems to like our tongue-in-cheek treatment of what is otherwise a sometimes dry, serious subject, and we certainly have more fun creating informative posts that take a few liberties not otherwise available in typical legal writing.”
The editorial staff of the CAFA Law Blog is comprised of McGlinchey Stafford attorneys Anthony Rollo, Hunter Twiford, and Michael Ferachi, Co-Editors-In-Chief; Gabe Crowson, Managing Editor; and Heather LaSalle, John Rouse, and Stephanie Tolson, Editors. “We take pride in the fact that the CAFA Law Blog is the only one-stop shop for ‘all things CAFA’,” said Michael Ferachi.
