Hence, one finding of our study is that there are areas of the class action "fishbowl" that are not always subject to public scrutiny.
In Chapters Five through Fourteen we tell the story of each of the ten lawsuits, as we learned it from the participants and the documents. While our reports inevitably reflect our sifting and sorting of the data, we do not attempt to draw conclusions about the cases. Rather, we hope that readers will make their own judgments as to the motivations of the participants, the virtues and vices of their practices, and the merits and demerits of the case outcomes.
In Section III, we present our interpretive analyses of the case study data and discuss what they contribute to our understanding of class action dilemmas.
