Ballard Spahr attorney Alan Kaplinsky was quoted as an expert when American Banker reported on the flood of overdraft cases in a Florida federal court, and the decision by the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation not to consolidate even more cases in the Florida court.

Mr. Kaplinsky commented that the panel’s decision was understandable due to the sheer scope of the litigation.

“Judge [Lawrence] King has done a very effective job, but things have slowed down as more and more cases have been sent to him. It just reached the saturation point,” Mr. Kaplinsky said.
