Tulane Law Professor Comments on Status of Class Action Reform in the National Law Journal

July 23, 2004

Edward Sherman, Tulane Law professor and former dean, was interviewed by the National  Law Journal about class action reform legislation that stalled in Congress in July. Sherman, who chaired the American Bar Association's task force on the legislation, said the bill "represented quite a change in our notion of federalism." The legislation would have pulled a large number of class actions out of state court and removed them to federal courts. The ABA had not taken a position on the bill. Supporters of the bill were unable to pass a motion to end debate and bring the matter up for vote.
