Welcome back to the Class Action & MDL Roundup! Our spring edition covers notable class actions from the first quarter of 2020.

In this edition, we continue to closely monitor the rapidly changing legal landscape as a result of COVID-19 class actions. Airlines, resorts, music festivals, and colleges and universities are all facing plaintiffs seeking refunds for tickets, memberships, and room and board.

The courts rang in the new year with a host of decisions and settlements in the first quarter. The consumer protection world saw a trend of false advertising and deception claims related to nutritional labeling on food items. The Seventh Circuit kept busy with multiple cases of unwanted text messages from service carriers and a major victory to a potential nationwide class of consumers in a junk fax TCPA class action. In a telephonically held hearing due to COVID-19, a bankruptcy court granted certification to a class of investors suing a former chairman and CEO for selling unregistered securities in an alleged $330 million Ponzi scheme.

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