ILR Research Review, Volume 6, Issue 2

As always, this edition of the ILR Research Review is an effort to signpost an increasingly vast, varied, and perilous litigation landscape for the American business community.

The research covered in this Review examines a range of developments occurring in different parts of that landscape, each of which has broader implications for the civil justice system. These developments include:

  • Plaintiffs’ bar recruitment of local communities to sue Louisiana energy companies over allegedly contributing to coastal erosion
  • The harmful effects of relying on private rights of action to secure consumer privacy, and the comparative efficiency of federal-only privacy enforcement
  • How arbitration is more likely to provide faster, more significant compensation for plaintiffs than litigation
  • The need for Congress and the Federal Advisory Committee on Civil Rules to ensure that defendants have equal access to interlocutory appeal in multidistrict litigation proceedings
