SCOTUS Dismisses Comcast Class Action

Ruling that “under the proper standard for evaluating certification, respondents’ model falls far short of establishing that damages are capable of measurement on a classwide basis,” the Supreme Court dismissed a class action lawsuit against Comcast in a 5-4 decision, the Associated Press reports.  “The current Court has taken much-needed steps to rationalize class certification,” writes the Wall Street Journal, “and the Justices should make it clear they expect other federal courts to honor the precedents.”  The court’s Comcast ruling comes less than two weeks after it nixed a plaintiff lawyer ploy to bypass provisions of the Class Action Fairness Act.
