Author, Newberg on Class Actions
"Indispensible for anyone involved, on any side, of any class action of any kind."
—Seth R. Lesser
"Almost every day, defense counsel asserts some reason why my class action supposedly can't proceed, and almost every time the Consumer Class Actions manual has a compilation of the authorities that rebut the argument. No one should bring consumer class actions who doesn't have this book on their shelf."
