Welcome to Critical MassLaw.com’s new briefing on class actions and mass torts. I’m Amanda Bronstad in Los Angeles. The judge in the Anthem data breachsettlement plans to bring in a special master to review a $38 million fee request, saying she was “deeply disappointed” in the plaintiffs lawyers. Wednesday was another long day in the opioid MDL, which the Rev. Al Sharpton criticized for being full of “rural, white lawyers.” And I’ve got more details from Law.com’s CharlesToutant about the talc trial against J&J in New Jersey.
