Class & Collective Action Group Newsletter

October 6, 2020

Welcome to the October 6, 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 a Second Circuit opinion vacating a class settlement that provided injunctive relief to a class of past purchasers in Berni v. Barilla. We also cover the Seventh Circuit’s decision in In re Allstate Corp. Securities Litigation vacating class certification and remanding for the district court to consider evidence of price impact, and affirming the addition of a new class representative. Finally, we cover an Arizona district court opinion concerning the district court’s acceptance of flawed evidence for purposes of determining numerosity under Rule 23 and authority to refuse to certify a class that otherwise meets all applicable requirements.
