"CAFA Jurisdiction over State Attorney General Parens Patriae Actions"

To resolve a split in the circuits, the Supreme Court has granted certiorari in a case that may determine whether state parens patriae actions may be removed to federal court under CAFA. Removal aids financial institutions, as defendants in such actions, by consolidating claims in a single, more receptive forum and also by possibly precluding subsequent state court actions by aligned nonparties.
