"Class action attorney fee digest" launched.

A new company, Octagon Publishing (Washington, D.C.), has begun the publication of "Class Action Attorney Fee Digest," a new monthly newsletter that is described as the "single source for attorney fee information." An annual subscription costs $1800.

Targeted to class action attorneys, including both defense and plaintiff counsel, judges and academics, the newsletter focuses exclusively on class action attorney fees and each issue carries a wide range of information from over 20 cases from state and federal courts, including both published and unpublished attorney fee information.

The newsletter includes data on: case name and citation; judge; plaintiff's complaint; settlement benefits; attorney fess; fee as a percentage of recovery; expenses; named plaintiff incentive award; hours; multiplier; court's reasoning; date case filed; date fees awarded; attorney's for both plaintiff and defense; and, other related information.

The company said the newsletter includes "comprehensive data about attorney fees and named plaintiff awards for all types of common fund class actions, reported and unreported, state and federal, large and small." The premier issue reported on attorney fees in 37 class actions. Of those, 23 cases involved payments to named plaintiffs (i.e., named plaintiff awards or lead plaintiff reimbursements under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995). The total included 24 federal cases and 13 state cases, covering such antitrust, civil rights, consumer law, employment law, securities, and wages and benefits.
