  • On May 2, the French Minister in charge of consumers, Benoît Hamon, proposed to the French cabinet meeting (conseil des ministres) a bill introducing the class action device (action de groupe) in France. This bill fulfills the promise made by French President François Hollande during his campaign for the presidency in 2012 to implement the class action device in France.
