The majority opinion in Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. v. Dukes, ___ U.S. ___ (Jun. 20, 2011) relied heavily on a 2009 law review article by the late Professor Richard A. Nagareda of Vanderbilt University School of Law. The dissent, too, cited a 2003 article by Professor Nagareda.
Professor Nagareda's influential articles are available online at these links:
- Nagareda, Class Certification in the Age of Aggregate Proof, 84 N.Y.U. L. Rev. 97 (2009)
