    In 1985, the United States Supreme Court held in Phillips Petroleum Co. v. Shutts, 427 U.S. 797, that state courts can, within certain due process constraints, adjudicate claims of non-resident class members. This ruling opened the door for state courts to entertain multi-state and nationwide class actions that had traditionally been filed in federal forums. While some state courts proved more hospitable than others to multi-state class actions, the following decades witnessed a significant increase in the number of multi-state class actions being adjudicated in state courts.

    The Law of Class Action: Fifty-State Survey 2015–2016 highlights the differences between each state’s laws, and how they respectively compare to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 23. The summaries in the book provide a thorough and thoughtful understanding of the workings of the relevant state class action rules and case law that will be extremely useful to practitioners and parties alike.
