The January 2014 issue of Plaintiff Magazine has a very interesting article about class actions in the post-Dukes, post-Concepcion, and post-Comcast world. The article is by Jahan Sagafi and Jennifer Liu of Outten & Golden.
Speaking of post-Comcast cases, the U.S. Supreme Court has once again re-listed the trio of front-load washer cases. Whirlpool Corp. v. Glaser, No. 13-431; Sears, Roebuck & Co. v. Butler, No. 13-430; BSH Home Appliances Corp. v. Cobb, No. 13-138.
Each of these cases is now scheduled for conference next Friday, February 21. If cert. is granted in any of them during that conference, the announcement should be online by Monday, February 24.
