B.J. Walker Co-Authors New CAFA Book

Rose Law Firm Attorney, B.J. Walker, co-authored the recently published book, The Class Action Fairness Act: Law and StrategyThe book focuses on practical advice for practitioners who must tackle the sometimes confounding technicalities of CAFA in the real world. CAFA drastically altered removal law, settlement law, and appeals procedures and standards, and includes vague jurisdictional provisions, multifactor tests, and complex exceptions. Many of these provisions include potential traps, resulting in potentially dire consequences for clients.This book looks at CAFA’s provisions, with in-depth analysis of statutory language, descriptions of key judicial interpretations, and specific suggested strategies for practitioners. This book will provide both plaintiff and defense counsel with a clearer picture of the statute, its case law, and helpful strategies, so attorneys can make better-informed decisions for their clients.
