Mexico Adopts A Class Action Procedure (July 29, 2010)

On July 29, 2010, an amendment to article 17 of the Mexican Constitution (on individual rights regarding access to justice - within the “Bill of Rights”) was published in Mexico’s Official Gazette of the Federation (Diario Oficial de la Federación – publication in the gazette is the final step in the federal legislative process), providing for class actions. Mexico’s federal Congress has a year to issue secondary legislation on how to regulate these collective actions.
