Welcome to Critical MassLaw.com’s weekly briefing on class actions and mass torts. I’m Amanda Bronstad in Los Angeles. A litigation funding bill introduced in the U.S. Senate last week got a cold reception from the finance and plaintiffs side–oh, and they had a few suggestions on how to change it. Class action plaintiffs’ lawyers–as well as one of their harshest critics–lashed out at the special master in the Anthem data breach settlement. And I launch a new feature in Critical Mass with a conversation with plaintiffs attorney Richard Fields about how litigation funders have changed the financing of big cases.
