Class Action & MDL Roundup – Fall 2019

Welcome back to the Class Action & MDL Roundup! Our fall edition covers notable class actions from the third quarter of 2019.

The circuit courts were busy with class actions in the third quarter. Appellate judges were able to see through several labeling cases that sought to mislead consumers – and the courts. They also ruled on the usual suspects of alphabet laws: ERISA, FACTA, and the TCPA. Not to be outdone, the California Supreme Court chimed in with a technical ruling on requirements at the certification stage. At the district level, plaintiffs claimed victories despite some long odds in a case that pit experts against each other and another involving remanufactured goods (another running theme this quarter). Defendants had better luck keeping one case in federal court and throwing out another for specious methodology.

We wrap up the Roundup with a summary of class action settlements finalized in the third quarter.
