This review discusses Professor Redish’s recent book on class actions, Wholesale Justice: Constitutional Democracy and the Problem of the Class Action Lawsuit. Professor Redish argues that many aspects of modern class action practice raise serious constitutional concerns and offers proposed reforms to address these problems. This review generally agrees with Professor Redish’s thesis, and offers additional ways in which his theories may be applied in class action practice.
