Australia: An Increasingly Attractive Plaintiffs’ Forum for Securities Class Actions — Quinn Emanuel

National Australia Bank, 130 S. Ct. 2869, 2886 (U.S. 2010), which made it more difficult for international litigants in securities class actions to sue in the United States. This has paved the way for the growth of Australia’s securities class action regime.
