Global Class Actions Symposium: The US, UK and Beyond
December 8, 2021
At the recent ICLG Global Class Actions Symposium, Dante Quaglione discussed class certification, noting that this has become easier in light of the judgment in Merricks; efficiency advantages of dealing with class members instead of a broad array of individuals; and the fact that aggregate damage is taken into account when certifying a class. He also noted a recent position from the UK Supreme Court that it may be appropriate to use informed guesswork to assist in developing a counterfactual.
