“'Gambits' or Just Good Lawyering? Class Action Cases in Supreme Court,” New York Law Journal

In this article, Jenner & Block Partner Jeremy M. Creelan and Associate Daniel H. Wolf explore class action cases before the US Supreme Court.  The authors explain that the Court in recent years has raised the thresholds for class action plaintiffs and other plaintiffs to bring and sustain their claims.  “At the start of this Supreme Court term, the court appeared poised to continue this threshold-raising trend,” the authors observe.  They examine Campbell-Ewald Co. v. Gomez and Microsoft Corp v. Baker.  Associate Jacob D. Alderdice assisted with preparing the article.
