Pierce Atwood is pleased to announce that it has launched a new class action blog, First Class Defense, that focuses on decisions of the state and federal courts within the boundaries of the First Circuit. With decades of national class action experience and offices in every First Circuit state, our goal is to serve as a primary resource for companies that face class litigation in Massachusetts, Maine, New Hampshire and Rhode Island, as well as to provide timely information about significant class action developments, strategies and trends on a national level.
The blog is authored by Don Frederico, John Aromando and other members of our Class Action Litigation Group.
Highlights of the initial blog posts include:
- CAFA Jurisdiction and Pleading Consumer Injury
- The Continuing Saga of Class Action Waivers in Massachusetts
- Denial of Class Certification in Litigation Alleging Wrongful Foreclosure of Consumer Mortgages: Manson et al. v. GMAC Mortgage, LLC et al.
We hope you'll enjoy our commentary as we track these legal issues.
