Many thanks for Dan Markel for allowing me to return to Prawfsblawg!  Last fall I plugged a paper I had completed, "Mass Torts and Due Process," which is now available on SSRN.  This month I plan to post on the Supreme Court's class action cases this term.  The first case, AT&T Mobility LLC v. Concepcion, has already been decided, and I plan to write something up next week.  As a bit of a preview, I will argue that the case is a lot harder than some of the commentary has suggested.  The Court will decide three more class action cases by the end of this term - Smith v. Bayer, 09-1205; Erica P. John Fund, Inc. v. Halliburton Co., No. 09-1403, and the granddaddy of them all, Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. v. Dukes, No. 10-277.  The cases are likely to close out the term, but I will try to write some thoughts on each throughout the month.  

Finally, I know there has been some criticism of  "pimping" current projects on Prawfsblawg, although I don't think that is the correct, nonprostitution use of the word "pimp."  Nevertheless, I want to "pimp" the work of another scholar.   Kevin Clermont has written an excellent essay on Penn Law Review's PENNumbra on the Smith v. Bayer case, entitled "Class Certification's Preclusive Effects."  In the immortal words of Lawrence Solum, download it while it's hot!!!
