France Adopts Limited Class Action Rule

We have posted before about the potential spread of class action litigation to other countries.  Now comes word that French President François Hollande has signed into law France’s new Consumer Law, which includes a class action procedure for consumer protection and antitrust claims. The new French law elects the “opt-in” model and limits the role of class representation to certain nationally representative and  accredited consumer associations.

Some colleagues of mine at SHB do a more in-depth  analysis here.
