This pocket guide is designed to help federal judges manage the increased number of class action cases filed in or removed to federal courts as a result of the Class Action Fairness Act of 2005 (CAFA). This second edition includes a new section on determining federal jurisdiction that incorporates case-management practices and judicial interpretations of CAFA. This edition also includes suggestions for judicial review and administration of class settlements, especially regarding the disclosure of claims rates and actual payments to class members.
