I recently published an article in the ABA Corporate Counsel newsletter, entitled “Strategies for Removal Under the Class Action Fairness Act.”  It is intended to serve as a quick guide to removal under the Class Action Fairness Act and addresses the key recent decisions, although it does not attempt to cover the entire landscape.  It’s along the lines of a checklist with annotations and explanation.  The next time you have a CAFA removal it might well be worth a read as you work through the issues.
