Accessing Justice: Appraising Class Actions Ten Years After Dutton, Hollick&; Rumley
The Supreme Court of Canada's 2001 decisions in Dutton, Hollick and Rumley entrenched class actions as an important element of our civil justice architecture. Between them, the trilogy has been cited with approval in over 1100 cases and has continued to become a point of reference for further studies in class actions.
Fifteen leading scholars and class action lawyers, from Canada and abroad, discuss the aims of class action litigation, the extent to which access to justice has been advanced, and how we can maximize class actions' access to justice potential. Thoughtful and informed, this collection of conference papers is a must read for all class action litigators, judges and policymakers.
