In February 2005, Congress enacted the Class Action Fairness Act (CAFA). CAFA alters class action practice in state and federal courts throughout the United States. The law: changes the rules for federal diversity jurisdiction and removal, enabling most large class cases to be filed in, or removed to, federal court; restricts the practice of coupon settlements; and transforms the procedures for settling class actions in federal courts. CAFA contains a host of new, often complex, rules.
     This site features a comprehensive collection of cases decided under or regarding CAFA, with summaries and full opinions for the included cases. Also featured is a collection of CAFA resources, including Professor Rubenstein's analysis of CAFA and the full text of CAFA.
