“Broadening Effort” by the Trump Administration to Rein in Class Actions

The Trump administration and the U.S. Justice Department have made several steps toward reining in class action legislation and that work may have an impact “beyond a trio of challenges the U.S. Supreme Court is set to hear this fall,” writes Law.com.

In June, the Justice Department said it would no longer support the National Labor Relation Board’s position that arbitration agreements barring class actions violate federal labor law.

Then in July, the Justice Department said it did not support a class action provision in the U.S. Labor Department’s fiduciary rule.

These steps “signal a broadening effort by the Trump administration” to rein in class actions.
