Geoffrey M. Wyatt Jordan M. Schwartz Lauren M. Griffith

Partner Geoffrey Wyatt, counsel Jordan Schwartz and law clerk Lauren Griffith discuss a Sixth Circuit ruling to vacate a district court’s certification of one of the largest class actions in American jurisprudence for lack of Article III standing. The authors point out the potential implications of the ruling for class action practice in the product liability sphere, particularly in medical monitoring cases involving far-fetched or attenuated theories of causation.
