In Visendi v. Bank of America, N.A., 733 F.3d 863 (9th Cir. 2013) (No. 13-16747), 137 plaintiffs sued defendants in state court complaining of defendants’ mortgage lending practices.  Defendants removed the lawsuit to federal court as a “mass action,” which is removable under CAFA.  The district court remanded the actions to state court.  On appeal, the Ninth Circuit concluded that plaintiffs had proposed a joint trial of more than 100 plaintiffs, justifying removal under CAFA.  The Ninth Circuit found, however, that the cases neither presented common questions of law nor fact such that all parties plaintiffs could be joined.  The Ninth Circuit directed the district court on remand to dismiss without prejudice the claims of all plaintiffs other than the first named plaintiff.  Those cases could be brought separately if the plaintiffs desired.
