New Mexico Class Action Law - Going Extinct?

November 7, 2010

Are New Mexico class action cases soon to be banned. That is the questions the Supreme Court will answer next week as they decide the future of not just New Mexico class action cases, but all class action matters across the entire nation.

The case going before the Court involves AT&T and the essential question they must decide is whether companies can prohibit class action lawsuits with language embedded in there contracts. If successful, large business will likely all add such language preventing any court from allowing a consumer to take on a massive corporation.

The decision, whichever way it goes, is going to be one of the more monumental cases to address the so called “tort reform” movement.
