I recently published an article on Class Action Fairness Act (CAFA) interlocutory appeals (pdf) in the Defense Research Institute’s In-House Defense Quarterly magazine.  DRI was kind enough to allow me to republish it here for readers of my blog.  My article focuses on the practical challenges in these appeals given their expedited timeframe, and strategies for petitioning for permission to appeal, opposing permission to appeal, and seeking a stay pending appeal.  If you take a look, I’d be interested in any comments you have on it.
