Class & Collective Action Group Newsletter

December 30, 2020

Welcome to the December 30, 2020 edition of our Class & Collective Action Group Newsletter, a briefing on recent developments in the class and collective action space.

In this edition, we cover the Ninth Circuit’s decision in Harris v. KM Industrial, Inc. regarding a defendant’s burden to prove the amount-in-controversy requirement for removal under the Class Action Fairness Act. We also cover a California district court decision in Karinski v., Inc. granting class certification of a securities fraud action and rejecting defendant’s attempt to demonstrate lack of price impact at the class certification stage. Finally, we cover a New York district court’s decision in Palmer v., Inc. dismissing without prejudice COVID-19 workplace safety claims under the primary-jurisdiction doctrine, holding that those claims should be referred to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration for adjudication.
