(Studio: Kate Snow) Live in-studio interview held with two lawyers, John Coale & John Beisner†, about the legislation to move big class action lawsuits from state to federal courts. [COALE - says Republican & corporate America believe the federal courts will be easier on them; states judges have to regulate the fees.] [BEISNER - says studies show select county courts have become magnets for these lawsuits; states the consumers don't get anything out of the lawsuits; comments on "coupon settlements."]
