The Supreme Court’s decision about lethal injections was the big news this week for society.

But mass tort lawyers should keep an eye on Taylor v. Sturgell.

That case involves the Freedom of Information Act and so may not naturally be on your radar screen.

But it raises the question whether the government must relitigate against different plaintiffs its responses to FOIA requests. There’s an obvious analogy to class action litigation, as the folks at the Mass Tort Litigation Profs Blog make clear in this post describing both the issue and yesterday’s argument.
