We know how the liberals feel about class actions, but is there a case for conservatives embracing them? As we learned during the election, it’s awfully tough to convince people that they’re wrong. But what about suggesting that conservatives’ existing beliefs embrace a pro-class-action viewpoint? After all, class actions offer concepts that conservatives tend to embrace, like market solutions, private-sector enforcement, and judicial efficiency . . . or do they? Our examination of whether conservatives can make a case for class actions will make the presidential debates look like in walk in President’s Park.
