The Delaware Law Review has published an article by Gregory P. Joseph, trial attorney and former chair of the ABA Section of Litigation, entitled Federal Class Action Jurisdiction After CAFA, Exxon Mobil and Grable, 8 Del. L. Rev. 157, which discusses changes in federal jurisdiction in 2005. Here’s the abstract:

2005 featured dramatic changes in federal jurisdiction effected by the Class Action Fairness Act of 2005, Pub. L. 109-2 ("CAFA") and the United States Supreme Court decisions in Exxon Mobil Corp. v. Allapattah Services ("Exxon Mobil") and Grable & Sons Metal Products, Inc. v. Darue Engineering & Manufacturing ("Grable"). This article explores the impact of CAFA, Exxon Mobil and Grable on federal jurisdictional principles governing class actions.
