CLASS ACTION LITIGATION
Representation of plaintiffs and defendants in class action lawsuits.
Examples of our representation in this practice area include:
• We successfully obtained dismissal of a class action against our client, a Pennsylvania county, challenging the county’s procedures in tax appeals.
• The Firm successfully defended a private development company and its officers and directors in a putative class action civil rights lawsuit by citizens of a locality for allegedly violating the citizens’ constitutional rights in connection with the approval process for a development.
• We successfully obtained reversal of a large class action damages award against our multinational corporate client and decertification of the class.
• We successfully defeated an appeal of a trial court ruling in favor of our class action plaintiff clients related to the complicated conversion of a large mutual insurance company to a for-profit entity.
