U.S. Chamber urges Ninth Circuit to grant rehearing en banc and reverse class certification order in Illinois Biometric Privacy Act case with no actual injury and an expansive geographic scope

September 16, 2019

The U.S. Chamber filed an amicus brief urging the full court to rehear the case and decertify the class, arguing that plaintiffs did not satisfy Article III’s injury requirements and that they did not fit the criteria for class certification. Previously, the Chamber filed two additional briefs supporting reversal of the class certification order.

Reginald J. Brown, Patrick J. Carome, Jonathan G. Cedarbaum, Kelly P. Dunbar, and Samuel M. Strongin of WilmerHale served as co-counsel for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce on behalf of the U.S. Chamber Litigation Center.
