French class actions

Pá 07 října 2005

USA Today reports about possible introduction of class action lawsuits in France. That’s really interesting, because I was studying a possibility of class-actions in the Czech law many years ago. The conclusion we’ve came to with Martin Mainser was that class action is not compatible with the legal regime in countries where every litigant has a right to control destiny of the litigation. I wonder what will French do with this problem—will they create some kind of mixed legal regime, or they will make class-actions somehow compatible with the European legal culture (I have no idea, how it could be done)? Interesting question.
