Unnamed Class Member Standing: A Circuit-by-Circuit Analysis (03/04/2021)

Program Number: 3161 Presenter: Marissa Bañez, Esq.

Must unnamed class members have standing for a court to certify or enter judgment in a class action? The answer is far from straightforward, as the Supreme Court has not squarely decided the question and circuit courts address this issue in various – and sometimes contradictory – ways.

This presentation will discuss the various approaches employed by the circuit courts throughout the country so that attorneys can
