    Since many of CAFAs provisions mark major departures from long-standing federal jurisdictional and class action law, this statute is in need for a simple roadmap suitable for all practitioners. CAFA drastically altered removal law, settlement law and appeals procedures and standards, and includes vague jurisdictional provisions, multifactor tests, and complex exceptions. Many of these provisions include potential traps, resulting in potentially dire consequences for clients.

    The book looks at CAFAs provisions, with in-depth analysis of statutory language, descriptions of key judicial interpretations, and specific suggested strategies for practitioners. CAFA has created important new strategic considerations for both plaintiffs and defendants. This book will provide both plaintiff and defense counsel with a clearer picture of the statute, its case law, and helpful strategies, so attorneys can make better-informed decisions for their clients. In addition, The Class Action Fairness Act: Law and Strategy includes a comprehensive effort to chronicle the legislative history of CAFA. This alone makes the book an essential resource for legal reference libraries.
