FJC Puts Out Class Action Litigation Guide for Judges

The Federal Judicial Center has published a booklet titled "Managing Class Action Litigation: A Pocket Guide for Judges." According to the FJC Web site, "This guide is designed to help federal judges manage the increased number of class actions expected as a result of the Class Action Fairness Act of 2005. As called for in that legislation, the guide is part of a continuing effort of the federal judiciary to identify 'best practices' for managing class actions and ensuring that class action settlements primarily benefit class members." Practitioners should find this a useful resource as well.
