With more than half of all cases pending in the federal courts now docketed in multidistrict litigations (MDLs), companies facing large-scale litigation should expect to find themselves before the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) with an MDL on the horizon. MDLs are common in product liability actions, but cover an expansive number of areas, including antitrust, air and common disasters, employment practices, intellectual property, sales practices, data security, and securities litigation.
