Since Congress enacted the Class Action Fairness Act of 2005, lawyers have been struggling to make sense of it. A group of lawyers at McGlinchey Stafford in Jackson, Miss. and New Orleans are trying to ease that task with the CAFA Law Blog.
Since September 2005, attorneys Anthony Rollo and Hunter Twiford have posted case summaries, event listings and legal articles to help other legal professionals stay on top of the evolving case law surrounding CAFA. In six months, 60,000 unique users have visited the site.
"The objective was to more firmly establish ourselves as experts in the field and get in on the ground floor with the recognition that comes with that," Rollo says.
The site's case studies are concise, but thorough enough to provide an accurate snapshot of each suit. Rollo and Twiford plan on adding guest commentaries and Webinars to the site in the near future.
"We saw the CAFA Law Blog as a tremendous way to be at the center of all the change in the law," Rollo says. "If we hadn't written CAFA Law Blog, we would be subscribing to it."
