This week’s National Law Journal reports on a recently-enacted Utah law that would permit class action waivers in credit card agreements. “F. Paul Bland Jr., staff attorney for Trial Lawyers for Public Justice, a Washington-based public interest law firm, called the new legislation ‘an effort to gut California protection laws by Utah legislation.’” A copy of the Utah bill (S.B. 252 Substitute, if I understand the Utah naming convention correctly) is accessible here. It does not appear to address the obvious choice-of-law question that would arise in a case involving California consumers.
