Issue: Whether the Second Circuit erred in concluding,
in direct conflict with a decision from the First Circuit on the same issue, that a representative plaintiff
has standing to assert on behalf of absent class
members claims for relief that the representative
plaintiff lacks standing to assert on its own behalf.
On Monday the Court issued orders from its December 6 Conference. (As Lyle reported the Court granted one new case from that Conference on Friday afternoon.) On Tuesday the Court issued one opinion and one dismissal. On Wednesday, the Court issued an additional opinion. This is the second week of the December sitting; the hearing list for this sitting is here.
