Class Action MDL Roundup Spring 2019

Class Action & MDL Roundup: Spring 2019

Welcome back to the Class Action & MDL Roundup! Our spring edition covers notable class actions from the first quarter of 2019.

There was a veritable traffic jam in the courts for the automotive industry. Manufacturers saw their antitrust efforts denied, while used-car dealerships had their stalled-out class claim go back to the starting line (for a win!). One car maker won on its home court, but another lost on the road. Meanwhile, the rubber hit the road for one tire company, but the skies were only partly sunny in a pair of sunroof cases.

A few Davids won their cases against Goliaths. Production assistants can now afford their own coffee after an entertainment giant settled for a grande. One mom will get her day in court to protect her son’s privacy in a roller coaster state case. And a class of referees who were voluntold to work cried foul and had their call upheld after further review.

We wrap up the Roundup with a summary of class action settlements finalized in the first quarter.
