NJ Ruling Could Mean Shorter Life for Shaky Class Claims


May 11, 2015

Jeffrey J. Greenbaum is quoted on a recent ruling supporting the early dismissal of class claims in a suit against auto insurers.  He stated: "Many putative class actions will still involve discovery because of the meticulous review tied to certification decisions, but the opinion is important and confirms that courts can act when it's clear drom the face of a complaint that the suit isn't appropriate for class treatment... It's consistent with current law but it may encourage more people to be bolder in the outset in such motions...I think it will give trial judges more comfort in doing so without fear of being reversed when it's appropriate."
