McGlinchey Stafford’s CAFA Law Blog Launches Podcasts: Audio News and Information About the Class Action Fairness Act of 2005
Law firm McGlinchey Stafford PLLC, nationally recognized for its class action defense practice, announced February 20, 2006 that its CAFA Law Blog now features audio podcasts of important developments related to the Class Action Fairness Act of 2005 (“CAFA”) and class action litigation.
CAFA Law Blog, the nation’s leading online resource for information regarding CAFA, provides its readers – and now, its listeners – with a constantly renewed source of decisions, analyses, news and insights about CAFA and its rapidly evolving case law.
CAFA Law Blog podcasts are available at no cost and can be accessed directly from the website (www.cafalawblog.com) or through iTunes or RSS feeds. The new CAFA Law Blog podcasts highlight the important cases, court decisions, trends and developments in the class action field, and also feature reviews of articles from other legal publications.
“Adding podcasts to the CAFA Law Blog allows lawyers, judges, corporate counsel and others interested in CAFA to easily download information from the blog and then listen to that information whenever and wherever they want,” according to Anthony Rollo, CAFA Law Blog Co-Editor in Chief. Anthony practices class action law in McGlinchey Stafford’s New Orleans and Baton Rouge offices, and heads McGlinchey’s national class action defense practice group.
“We’re excited about the new technology, and our readers and listeners are, too,” said Hunter Twiford, CAFA Law Blog Co-Editor in Chief. “The CAFA Law Blog just published its 300th post, and we’re going to keep bringing our audience the latest CAFA decisions and news. The podcasts are just another way to offer the information.” Hunter practices commercial and class action defense law in McGlinchey Stafford’s Jackson, Mississippi office.
“CAFA Law Blog’s new podcasts just solidify McGlinchey Stafford’s position as a leader in the innovative use of information technology,” said Kevin O’Keefe, President of Seattle-based LexBlog (www.lexblog.com), the foremost provider of professional blogs to the legal profession.
“McGlinchey is the first large law firm in the country among our clients to harness the power of podcasting,” O’Keefe observed, and noted, “Law firms tend to lag behind other industries in their use of technology, such as podcasting. That’s not the case here. It’s significant that McGlinchey offers this free service to its users, who have come to see CAFA Law Blog as the go-to source on CAFA issues.”
About CAFA Law Blog
Today’s evolving CAFA class action landscape is unrecognizable to many class action practitioners, parties and courts. Ambiguities and uncertainties in class action law and jurisprudence following CAFA’s passage pose opportunities for attorneys and litigants who learn to safely maneuver across this foreign terrain, and dangerous traps for those who do not. The goal of the CAFA Law Blog, launched in September, 2005, is to provide guidance for travelers through this new landscape.
McGlinchey Stafford PLLC publishes the CAFA Law Blog (www.cafalawblog.com), and McGlinchey Stafford class action attorneys comprise the blog’s Editorial Staff, including Anthony Rollo and Hunter Twiford, the blog’s creators and Editors in Chief; Michael Ferachi, its Senior Editor; Jay O’Brien, its Managing Editor; and John Rouse, Assistant Editor. Editors of the CAFA Law Blog also perform double-duty as the voices for the podcasts.
