Wal-Mart v. Dukes: Class Actions and Legal Strategy

September 19, 2011

Cato Supreme Court Review, Forthcoming

Abstract:     
The Court’s decision in Wal-Mart v. Dukes, like its other class action rulings in the 2010-11 term, reflects an effort to ‘‘reset’’ class certification strategies. By passing judgment on the propriety of a number of the more strategic innovations in class action practice, the Court has cleared away doctrinal developments that did not necessarily reflect the intent of Rule 23.
