McGlinchey Stafford, a law firm recognized nationwide for its practice defending class action lawsuits, today launched the first-ever Web Log (Blog), www.cafalawblog.com, focused on the Class Action Fairness Act of 2005 (CAFA). This interactive Blog features cutting-edge information providing readers with a constantly renewed source of news and insights about CAFA and its rapidly evolving case law.
Passed by Congress in February of this year, CAFA has revolutionized and changed the class action landscape by dramatically expanding federal court jurisdiction over class actions, and by requiring close court supervision of class settlements to avoid abuses and enhance consumer protection.
The CAFA Law Blog offers attorneys, courts, businesses and other readers new and comprehensive information about this important new law, discusses its implications and effect on companies doing business, and contains summaries of case rulings as they are decided by the courts, with links to the full texts of the decisions.
McGlinchey Stafford offers clients a premier national class action defense team. McGlinchey Stafford attorneys have represented clients in hundreds of class action matters in more than 25 states, including suits involving consumer financial services, banking, insurance, deceptive trade practices, products liability, environmental law, toxic torts, personal injury, health care, public utilities, and labor and employment issues and claims. “
We have always strived to provide top-flight legal services, and to accommodate and support the changing needs of our clients to the best of our ability. They have told us they want and need more information about CAFA,” said Anthony Rollo (New Orleans), CAFA Law Blog Co-Editor and class action defense team leader with McGlinchey Stafford.
“The flexibility and utility of the blog format allows us to supplement our private advice to clients with a public forum to disseminate information about CAFA and publish reader commentary, and to remain a leader in the class action field,” added Hunter Twiford (Jackson), Co-Editor of CAFA Law Blog and partner in the firm’s class action defense team.
