During its recently concluded October 2012 term, the Supreme Court of the United States decided seven cases that are likely to have a significant impact on class action practice. This term’s decisions addressed evidentiary standards for class certification, materiality in securities fraud class actions, jurisdiction under the Class Action Fairness Act, offers of judgment, the enforceability of class action waivers in arbitration clauses, and the use of state DMV databases to identify and solicit potential class action plaintiffs.
