The Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation ordered today that its seven members will gather for the next argument session on November 19 in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Their Honors will hear from lawyers in, by Blawgletter's count, 16 potential MDL matters.
By the way, we confess to error in guessing the Panel would head south for this gathering. You can't get a whole lot farther north in the lower 48 than the Ames Courtroom at Harvard Law School.
Further by the way, the numbers have come in for the last set of MDL cases. By circuit and district court:
Southern District of New York (2)
Western District of New York
District of New Jersey
District of Maryland
Northern District of Texas (2)
Southern District of Illinois
District of Minnesota
Western District of Missouri
District of Arizona
Central District of California
Southern District of California
Northern District of Alabama
Northern District of Georgia (2)
