It’s a pleasure to have an intelligent, articulate, defense-minded voice join us in the blogosphere.

(Lord knows, we can use all the help we can get.)

So we welcome aboard our new visitors who came through from Russell Jackson’s Consumer Class Actions and Mass Torts blog.

We’re also delighted to be spared the effort of writing up Williams v. Nidek Co., Ltd., 2009 WL 226024 (Cal. App. 4th Dist. Feb. 2, 2009), in which the California Court of Appeal affirmed the denial of class certification in a case involving people who had undergone Lasik surgeries to correct far-sightedness, and had not suffered personal injuries.
