Class Action Litigation Year in Review 2014


Welcome to the inaugural issue of Haynes and Boone’s Class Action Litigation Year in Review.

Many commenters predicted the death of class actions after the Supreme Court’s defense-friendly decisions in AT&T v. Concepcion, Wal-Mart v. Dukes, and Comcast v. Behrend. Like Mark Twain’s death those reports have been greatly exaggerated. The plaintiffs’ bar keeps filing class actions and surveys consistently find that class actions are among the biggest worries for in-house counsel.

This inaugural Class Action Litigation Year in Review focuses on key federal court decisions issued this year on class action issues. It does not attempt to catalogue every case, but rather, the focus is on a big picture overview of key cases and trends on issues that cut across all types of class actions.
