1.1.4 Legal Citations and Resources
Since this treatise is essentially a “nuts and bolts” guide, the case citations that primarily support the plaintiff’s positions focus on consumer cases, are not exhaustive, and are intended primarily to illustrate the points made. Typical defendants’ arguments in opposition to class certification are also outlined, and some case precedent supporting defendants’ positions is provided to flesh these out. However these examples are not meant to be a comprehensive compilation. United States Supreme Court class action cases are, of course, set out as applicable.
A growing number of websites provide extremely helpful and current information for class action practitioners. Appendix F, infra, sets out links to many of the leading sites. Calling up this list of links online has the extra benefit of allowing the reader to access any particular website by clicking on its web address link, which will bring the reader directly to that site on the web.
