U.S. Supreme Court rules on class action issue
Today, the U.S. Supreme Court issued its opinion in Exxon Mobil Corp. v. Allapattah Services, Inc., ___ U.S. ___ (June 23, 2005). The opinion is 54 pages long and seems to be saying that in a diversity action, if one plaintiff's claim is over $75,000, the federal court has supplemental jurisdiction over the rest of the class members' claims. UPDATE: There appears to be a problem with the way the main page of the blog is loading. I don't know why it's doing this and have contacted Blogger Support.
