Ted Frank has won several landmark appeals and tens of millions of dollars for consumers and other plaintiffs through the Center for Class Action Fairness, the non-profit project he founded in 2009. His challenges to unfair class action settlements have been covered by the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Reuters, the National Law Journal, the American Lawyer, and numerous other publications; Adam Liptak of the New York Times calls him "the leading critic of abusive class-action settlements." Previously, Mr. Frank clerked for the Honorable Frank H. Easterbrook on the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals, was a litigator for leading law firms for ten years, and served as the first director of the AEI Legal Center for the Public Interest. Mr. Frank has written for law reviews, the Wall Street Journal, and several other publications. He has testified before Congress multiple times on legal issues. In 2008, Mr. Frank was elected to membership in the American Law Institute. He also serves on the Executive Committee of the Federalist Society Litigation Practice Group. Mr. Frank graduated the University of Chicago Law School with high honors and as a member of the Order of the Coif and the Law Review, and won his division of the Kalven League twice in a row. He is played by a much more handsome Gentile in the HBO docudrama based on a book that mentions Mr. Frank once on page 362.
