Mass litigation is a relatively new phenomenon in Europe, yet it is gradually developing into an important area of the law. This is incited by the impact on society that mass harm might have, such as the Volkswagen emissions scandal. The past decades have demonstrated an increasing expansion of litigation mechanisms to address various types of mass harm. Meanwhile, commerce-driven parties are mushrooming, incentivised by the potential large earnings that mass litigation provides. Law firms, claim organizations and third-party funders increasingly engage in the already existing mechanisms and explore hidden or new pathways. This innovation in civil law is two-faced. Entrepreneurial mass litigation might stimulate and improve access to justice and private enforcement, but it can also fuel a compensation culture and encourage abusive behaviour. This book explores the conditions for assessing the contribution of entrepreneurship to mass litigation, by way of a theoretical and comparative legal study. It aims to contribute to the academic, political and judicial process of weighing and balancing the benefits and drawbacks of entrepreneurial mass litigation.
Whatever deficits remain in the Canadian project to make justice available to all, class actions have been heralded as a success story. Beginning in 1979 in Quebec, and in the '90s for most of English-speaking Canada, class actions were introduced to overcome barriers to justice for those who would otherwise have no recourse to the courts. Class Actions in Canada critically and empirically examines whether collective litigation is meeting this primary goal. First drawing on foundational literature and recent jurisprudence to propose a conceptualization that moves beyond mere access to a court procedure, leading class action scholar Jasminka Kalajdzic then methodically assesses survey data and case studies to determine how class action practice fulfills or falls short of its objectives. Class Actions in Canada takes a rigorous, evidence-based approach. With class actions becoming increasingly controversial in the United States and collective redress mechanisms being cautiously adopted in many other parts of the world, this is a timely exploration of collective litigation as it has evolved in Canada over the past twenty-five years, and particularly in Ontario.
The American legal system is experiencing a period of extreme stress, if not crisis, as it seems to be losing its legitimacy with at least some segments of its constituency. Nowhere is this legitimacy deficit more apparent than in a portion of the African American community in the U.S., as incidents of police killing black suspects - whether legally justified or not - have become almost routine. However, this legitimacy deficit has largely been documented through anecdotal evidence and a steady drumbeat of journalistic reports, not rigorous scientific research. This book offers an all-inclusive account of how and why African Americans differ in their willingness to ascribe legitimacy to legal institutions, as well as in their willingness to accept the policy decisions those institutions promulgate. Based on two nationally-representative samples of African Americans, this book ties together four dominant theories of public opinion: Legitimacy Theory, Social Identity Theory, theories of adulthood political socialization and learning through experience, and information processing theories. The findings reveal a gaping chasm in legal legitimacy between black and white Americans. More importantly, black people themselves differ in their perceptions of legal legitimacy. Group identities and experiences with legal authorities play a crucial role in shaping whether and how black people extend legitimacy to the legal institutions that so much affect them. This book is one of the most comprehensive analyses produced to date of legal legitimacy within the American black community, with many surprising and counter-intuitive results.
