Forum Shopping Goes North--Or Just Come to Southern California

As mentioned in a previous post, I have been thinking a bit about what happens when U.S. courts become less open to plaintiffs.  As the Wall Street Journal reports, increased restrictions on U.S. securities class actions may interestingly be encouraging such litigation in Canada.  I wonder if anyone has any other evidence supporting similar reactions to restrictive U.S. law?

On a related note, this is a reminder that there will be a fantastic conference on litigating human rights cases in state courts at UC-Irvine on Friday of this week.  Full information is here.  Here's hoping to see some of you there!
