Class Action MDL Roundup Summer 2019

Class Action & MDL Roundup: Summer 2019

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

The Supreme Court granted cert on a pair of ERISA cases that revived one ruling thought settled and upended another with a circuit split. Wrong numbers were dialed in a pair of TCPA cases, with one dismissal reversed on appeal and another finding that wrong numbers protected the defendant from class certification. A Florida court stopped a glyphosate class action in its tracks, and a New York court put the brakes on a class of 67,000 car owners. But plaintiffs came through with several wins, including an employee stock ownership plan case, a fight against a Ponzi scheme, and medical insurance claims.

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