by | May 7, 2012

Class Action Litigation in the United States and Europe: A study prepared by Oxford Pro Bono Publico for the Legal Resources Centre, South Africa (May 2012)

A comparative analysis of class action law in Europe and the United States. The report answers four questions posed by the Legal Resources Centre for use in their intervention. These are: (1) What should be the rules for instituting class actions?; (2) Is there a requirement of certification, and if so, what evidence is necessary to discharge it?; (3) What is the position of class actions with multiple defendants?; and (4) What is the methodology used to quantify damages and to divide them among members of a class?
