Drew Hansen, Seth Goldstein Highlighted for Denial of Class Certification Win for C.R. England
Drew Hansen and Seth Goldstein were recognized for their recent victory on behalf of C.R. England when class certification was denied in the Curtis Markson et al. v. CRST International, Inc. et al. matter.
The Daily Journal article reporting on the win, “Truckers' Class Denied in Antitrust Lawsuit Against Big Rig Companies,” (subscription required) stated that U.S. District Judge Stanley Blumenfeld Jr. “denied a motion for class certification in an antitrust lawsuit brought by truck drivers who claim eight trucking companies colluded to deprive workers of better compensation or the chance to change employers by limiting recruiting and terminating them before the costs of training schools was fully waived.” The story further noted the ruling reduces the “plaintiff pool from nearly 100,000 putative class members to the individual claims.”
Commenting on the win for Law360, Drew said, "The denial of class certification is a huge development that guts plaintiffs' case…Plaintiffs were trying to bring claims on behalf of tens of thousands of drivers but their case has now been whittled down to the claims of a mere four people. C.R England continues to vigorously deny plaintiffs' allegations and is confident that the court will rule in its favor on what little remains of plaintiffs' case."
Drew and Seth were lead outside counsel on the matter for C.R. England.
