Jenner & Block Partner Howard S. Suskin served as Coordinating Editor for the new publication, The Law of Class Action: Fifty-State Survey, 2011-2012.  The survey, which was prepared under the auspices of the ABA Section of Litigation Class Actions and Derivative Suits Subcommittee on State Laws, analyzes key developments in class action rules and statutes as well as significant case law in each of the 50 states.  The summaries, prepared by litigators from each of the respective states, address changes in rules and statutes, as well as significant case law.  The book is a valuable tool for both in-house and outside counsel confronting the prospect of litigating class actions in state forums in which they may have little or no experience and having to make informed recommendations on removal.
