Welcome to Critical MassLaw.com’s new briefing on class actions and mass torts. I’m Amanda Bronstad in Los Angeles. This week, lawyers are watching to see whether the U.S. Supreme Court could finally take up the vexing issue of standing in data breach class actions. Meanwhile, lawyers for air bag plaintiffs said a trust in Takata‘s bankruptcy could fetch and distribute $130M — better than nothing, considering the company is in Chapter 11. The outgoing No. 3 official at the Justice Department, Rachel Brand, told a conservative legal group AG Jeff Sessions could order that more class action settlements be reviewed. And Elizabeth Cabraser helps fund a new consumer law center at Berkeley.
