Topic: Class Actions and Environmental Law
As courts and legislators have made it more difficult to bring effective class actions, can class actions continue to advance environmental objectives and hold polluters accountable?
Essays may focus on these or other related questions:
How do evolving standards of “commonality” affect environmental class actions?
How might major environmental problems that we are facing be amenable to class treatment?
How would these actions be brought? What damage recoveries and other results may be sought?
