Illustrative Forms of Class Action Notices: Notice Checklist and Plain Language Guide


In November 2010, we added two new tools—a notice checklist and a plain language guide—to help attorneys and judges create effective notices and notice plans. The checklist and language guide are available as one document. We created these with assistance from Todd B. Hilsee of the Hilsee Group LLC.

Judges' Class Action Notice and Claims Process Checklist and Plain Language Guide
2010 (PDF, 10 pp.)
The checklist provides overall guidance on notice and notice plan development and provides guidance for improving class actions claims processes. A graphical plain language notice guide explains and highlights the important features of the illustrative notices.
