Litigating Mass Tort Cases details the legal underpinnings of mass tort law - both substantive and procedural - while providing expert, how-to guidance. 

 The text offers:

  • Step-by-step instructions for preparing a case
  • Concise details, including practical advice on how to tell which cases to take, where to file, and where to get more information on the litigation
  • Litigation and case-specific forms, which can be used as a template for a new mass tort
  • Ethical requirements for practice in mass torts, as applied to both plaintiff and defense counsel
  • Information on how to handle a large number of mass tort cases at one time, appointment of lead counsel, fees, bankruptcy, settlement, and more
  • Case histories of specific litigations 
  • Current status of all MDLs which deal with mass torts—drugs, devices, auto products, and other substances;
  • Completely revised material on jurisdiction, following the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Bristol-Myers Squibb, including description of how the Bristol-Myers Squibb Supreme Court decision is limiting jurisdictions where mass tort cases can be commenced plus explanation of ways to get around the case
  • Analysis of case precedents for suits arising after the game-changing jurisdictional requirements in the Supreme Court decision in the Bristol-Myers Squibb case
