A Negative Retrospective of Rule 23
92 New York University Law Review 917 (2017)
  • Scott Dodson
This symposium contribution offers a negative retrospective of Rule 23 through six decades of rulemaking. Rather than focus on what was, I consider what was not: major amendment proposals that failed to become law. This negative retrospective projects a dramatically different vision of Rule 23, and it offers insights into both the Rule 23 of today and the rulemaking process more generally.
