Lawyers Weigh In On High Court’s Class Action Ruling

Overview


Joshua Rogaczewski said that, despite a Supreme Court ruling that class action defendants could not escape the lawsuit by making a settlement offer to individual plaintiffs, such a strategy “may not be foreclosed completely. The court’s opinion left for another day whether the tender of complete relief to the plaintiff would moot her case … Expect defendants to adjust course and tender what amounts to complete relief into courts’ registries in an attempt to achieve the result sought by [the defendant] in this case.”
