INTRODUCTION "Our Federalism," as Justice Black described it, "is a system in which there is sensitivity to the legitimate interests of both State and National Governments."

At first, the focus was which forum--state court or federal court--was better suited to adjudicate high-stakes class actions. This was the principal subject of the 2005 Class Action Fairness Act, which expanded federal diversity jurisdiction to encompass a wider range of class actions, even when the class's claims arise exclusively under state law.
