Mass Tort Litigation: Cases and Materials
A generation after the appearance of mass tort litigation as a new phenomenon, Professor Linda S. Mullenix has issued the second edition of her landmark casebook in MASS TORT LITIGATION. The second edition reflects two concepts. First, that the seminal, core cases and materials relating to mass tort litigation still remain viable precedents after twenty-five years. And second, courts are still struggling to find solutions to the resolution of this complex litigation. In addition to the seminal cases relating to Agent Orange, Dalkon Shield, DES, and asbestos litigation, the casebook is updated with materials relating to breast implant litigation, tobacco litigation, medical device and pharmaceutical litigation. The updated casebook is suitable for advanced courses in tort litigation, complex procedure, class action litigation, and dispute resolution offerings.
