Professor Linda Mullenix reviews class action fairness case before Supreme Court

Professor Linda Mullenix has written a commentary on Standard Fire Ins. Co. v. Knowles—argued before the Supreme Court on January 7, 2013—in Preview of Supreme Court Cases. The case concerns the removal of a state class action into federal court and addresses the issue of whether state court plaintiffs may stipulate to damages below the federal jurisdictional threshold to evade removal under the Class Action Fairness Act (CAFA).
