"The Immediate Class Action Litigation Decisions for In-House Counsel to Make," InsideCounsel

January 13, 2016

In an article published on January 13, 2016, Eric Fisher and his colleague Ryan C. Grelecki, an assistant professor at Georgia State University, provide guidance to in-house counsel on the immediate class action litigation decisions they should make. The article, which is the final column in a three-part series, details the steps in-house counsel should take when their company is served with a summons and complaint in an alleged class action, including the initial steps of engaging in outside counsel and deciding whether the court in which plaintiff filed the complaint is the appropriate jurisdiction. The column emphasizes that “because recent decisions have encouraged courts to rule on class certification as soon as reasonably possible, corporations should be aggressive and proactive in pointing out which class certification requirements the plaintiff cannot satisfy.”
