The Class Action Fairness Act of 2005 (CAFA) turns 15 years old on Feb. 18, 2020. But while CAFA is well known for expanding federal subject matter jurisdiction for class actions, it also requires defendants who settle any class action in federal court (not just those removed to federal court under CAFA) to provide notice of the settlement to the federal and relevant state governments. (See 28 U.S.C. §1711(2) (defining “class action” to include “any civil action filed in a district court of the United States under rule 23 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure or any civil action that is removed to a district court of the United States that was originally filed under a state statute or rule of judicial procedure authorizing an action to be brought by 1 or more representatives as a class action”).)
