Class & Collective Action Group Newsletter

November 13, 2020

Welcome to the November 13, 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 Sixth Circuit opinion reversing certification of a “negotiation class” in In re National Prescription Opiate Litigation. We also cover the Eleventh Circuit’s decision in Johnson v. NPAS Solutions, LLC vacating a class settlement approval and holding that incentive awards for named plaintiffs in class actions are impermissible. Finally, we cover the Ninth Circuit’s decision in Jabbari v. Farmer that a district court need not conduct choice-of-law analysis as part of the predominance inquiry when certifying a settlement class, and the Ninth Circuit’s decision in Rittmann v. Amazon, Inc. that Amazon Flex delivery providers are exempt from the Federal Arbitration Act’s enforcement provisions.
