During the second quarter of 2014, we saw various federal courts interpret and apply Comcast and other courts apply the Third Circuit’s Carrera decision—with mixed results for class defendants. Some plaintiffs’ counsel have responded to Comcast with classwide damage models built to withstand Daubert challenges; others have not, giving defendants strong arguments against certification. Ascertainability continues to be a battleground, but courts’ interest in the subject varies outside the Third Circuit.

Please let us know how we can make it better. We hope you enjoy the report.
