Yesterday, the U.S. Supreme Court heard oral argument in a CAFA case, Hertz Corp. v. Friend, no. 08-1107. Here is my earlier blog post discussing that case. The plaintiffs' position was argued by none other than fellow SFTLA and CAOC Board member Todd M. Schneider of Schneider Wallace in San Francisco. The transcript is already available online (via SCOTUSblog), and press coverage appears in articles from the National Law Journal, CNNMoney.com, and Courthouse News Service, as well as in today's Daily Journal (no link available).
Being more accustomed to California Supreme Court practice, it's amazing to me how quickly the federal Supreme Court hears cases. Cert. was granted in June 2009, and argument was heard in November 2009, just five months later. In the California Supreme Court it takes years to get to the same point.
