Multiple Attorneys Successfully Oppose Plaintiff’s Motion In Class And Collective Action

 In Uncategorized

Eric Hemmendinger, Teresa Teare, and Lindsey White, with the assistance of Paul Burgin and Evan Conder, successfully opposed a motion by the plaintiff in a significant class and collective action seeking individualized classwide discovery, including production of a list with contact information for all putative class members, even though the Court had not granted conditional certification. If a Court grants conditional certification, it is tasked with supervising the process of providing judicial notice to absent class members.  Production of contact lists prior to conditional certification, as sought by plaintiff in this matter, provides plaintiffs the ability to improperly solicit additional claimants to join the case and provide widespread notice to potential claimants without judicial supervision.
