Cases & Deals successfully opposes nationwide class action involving product misrepresentation


Jones Day successfully opposed a motion to certify a massive nationwide class action against client,, Inc. ("CIC"), by convincing the Court that the plaintiff had failed to satisfy the numerosity requirement in Rule 23(a)(1) because plaintiff had failed to present sufficient evidence demonstrating that any other consumers fell within his proposed class definition. The lawsuit asserted that CIC had misrepresented the credit monitoring product's ability to protect against identity theft in violation of the California Consumer Legal Remedies Act ("CLRA") and had breached provisions of CIC's Terms and Conditions.
