The Relationship of the Attorney General and private litigants
Attorneys general do not operate in a vacuum and are very often not the only parties on their side of a case. With the realities of state budget reductions and the increased scope of the matters that attorneys general address, it is not surprising that attorneys general are often offered assistance by private litigants and their lawyers sometimes on a contingency basis.
This Chapter explores the legal and ethical issues that arise from this practice.
The readings are grouped into two categories, e.g. retention of plaintiff counsel and retention of defense counsel.EDIT PLAYLIST INFORMATION DELETE PLAYLIST

With the certification of private class action cases becoming more and more difficult, private class counsel often seek to be retained by attorneys general to pursue consumer, antitrust and qui tam matters.
This practice is strongly opposed by business organizations such as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and there has been substantial litigation on whether attorneys general are legally allowed to retain contingent counsel.
