Trying an Antitrust Class Action

Hopefully this article will be of assistance to lawyers prosecuting a class action, but its suggestions are not limited to antitrust class actions.

By Jerry L. Beane

The title got your attention, right? Surely it must be a misprint. No antitrust class action cases are tried! Like every generalization, however, there are exceptions. Antitrust class actions are sometimes tried. This article draws upon personal experiences in trying antitrust class actions in both federal and state courts. Although focused on the defense of an antitrust class action, hopefully the article will also be of interest and assistance to lawyers prosecuting a class action. Furthermore, the suggestions in this article are not limited to antitrust class actions. They apply to the trial of any type of class action.
