Class Certification Case Defeated

Daniel J. Ford, Jr. (Of Counsel/Irvine Office) and Laura J. Barns (Junior Partner/Irvine Office) recently were able to successfully keep a proposed class action lawsuit involving the adjustment of hundreds and hundreds of property claims from being certified. The lead plaintiffs alleged that one single independent insurance adjuster had wrongfully miscalculated their repair estimates, such that they were unable to obtain a repair, typically caused by water damage, which would put their home in the condition before the water loss. Mr. Ford and Ms. Barns successfully convinced the court that the statute of limitations barred the class representatives’ claims and that they were inadequate class representations. Judgment was entered for the insurance carrier.
