Class Action Playbook is a unique and strategic how to guide for practitioners seeking to bring or defend a class action. Every important issue is addressed, including the initial shape of the proposed action, choice of forum, case-management schedules, pre-certification discovery and motions activity, briefing and argument of the class-certification motion, class notice, preparation for trial, class settlements, and the binding effects of class action judgments. Brian Anderson and Andrew Trask, practitioner experts with a wealth of experience representing companies in class actions, analyze what decisions the plaintiff and defendant must make at each stage of a proposed class action, and the considerations that might drive different strategies. The authors explain the importance of every issue, the choices available to each side, and the factors each side should consider in choosing the best path to follow.
Class Action Playbook, reprinted annually to incorporate the latest relevant legal developments, was referenced by the United States Supreme Court in Frank v. Gaos, 139 S. Ct. 1041, 203 L. Ed. 2d 404 (2019), and cited by Judge Posner in Thorogood v. Sears, Roebuck and Company, 624 F.3d 842 (7th Cir. 2010). It is a valuable guide for both experienced practitioners and attorneys in need of a refresher on class actions.
