Shady Grove Orthopedic Assoc., P.A. v. Allstate Ins. Co.
Shady Grove Orthopedic Assoc., P.A.
Allstate Ins. Co.
State-law Class Actions, Civil Procedure
1. Can a state legislature properly prohibit the federal courts from using the class
action device for state law claims?
2. Can state legislatures dictate procedure in the federal courts?
3. Could state-law class actions eventually disappear altogether, as more state
legislatures declare them off limits to the federal courts?
