This book is essential for: All practitioners involved in class action lawsuits.
The Class Proceedings Act imposes on lawyers and judges significant responsibilities beyond those in normal civil actions, but offers little guidance on how these responsibilities should be discharged. In writing Class Proceedings Act—Annotated, the Honourable Mr. Justice Frank Maczko and James Sullivan (co-author of the 2002 update) have set out to provide practical advice for those charged with making decisions in the proceedings. He has created a handy, current reference brimming with precise commentary on the key issues. Organized as a series of discussions prompted by specific sections of the Act, this guide is the book to keep at hand and to take to court.
