“issues classes” and Rule 23(b)(3)’s predominance requirement

Russell Jackson was one of three panelists who participated in Strafford Publications’ 90-minute seminar on reconciling the conflict between “issues classes” and Rule 23(b)(3)’s predominance requirement. Russell — who was the only panelist advocating the plaintiffs’ position — opined that there is no conflict: when the Advisory Committee wrote Rule 23 more than 45 years ago, it specifically endorsed the use of its “issues class” provision to carve out particular common issues for treatment as a class action, even if the entire claim as a whole was not capable of class certification. You can contact Strafford Publications or Russell for information on how to access the seminar.
