U.S. Supreme Court

Case Status


Docket Number


Cert. Denied


Questions Presented

1. Whether courts of appeals reviewing Rule 23 class certification decisions must, as a matter of law, give district court decisions granting class certification “noticeably more deference” than rulings denying class certification.

2. Whether Rule 23(a)’s commonality requirement is satisfied through the assertion of a purportedly class-wide policy without significant proof that such policy is uniformly applied class-wide.
