Mexican consumers can now fight the power

The Congress of Mexico publishes new law allowing customers to bring class-action suits

The General Congress of the United Mexican States enacted the first law allowing consumers to bring class action suits in April, but the law was finally published this week in the country’s official government publication, the Official Gazette of the Federation. The law is slated to take effect March 1, 2012.
