Alexander Dubose Jefferson & Townsend led the charge of more than 170 authors in the publication of a new comprehensive guide on class actions published by the Tort Trial and Insurance Practice Section of the American Bar Association. ADJT's practice includes sophisticated federal and state class actions and multidistrict litigation matters throughout the country.
The book – A Practitioner's Guide to Class Actions, Second Edition – just published in August 2017 – updates and expands on the first volume published in 2010 to provide in-depth knowledge of the many intricacies of class action lawsuits. The guide also includes a state-by-state analysis of the ways in which class action rules differ from the Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 23.
ADJT partner Marcy Hogan Greer is the National Editor for the two-volume, 1600-page book, and ADJT partners Kirsten Castañeda and Alex Albright authored a new chapter for the book on standing, flowing from the U.S. Supreme Court's groundbreaking opinion in Spokeo, Inc. v. Robins, 136 S. Ct. 1540 (2016).
