As the legal reform community looks ahead to a busy few months to cap off 2022, this edition of the ILR Research Review offers analyses and solutions for some of the most significant problems in civil litigation today. Specifically, this edition of the Review includes:

  • An analysis of the many flaws in the U.S. class action system and suggested measures to correct them
  • A data-driven discussion of the destructive and disproportionate impact that the federal False Claims Act’s mandatory per-violation civil penalty has on the health care industry
  • An exploration of the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark 2021 decision in TransUnion LLC v. Ramirez, including a discussion of relevant precedent, the Court’s reasoning, and the decision’s likely consequences
  • A detailed look at the re-emerging problem of “frequent filers” in securities class action litigation, and at how these litigants are evading safeguards Congress put in place to prevent abuse of the system
