US Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit - 822 F.2d 59 (6th Cir. 1987) July 7, 1987

Before KEITH and NORRIS, Circuit Judges, and PECK, Senior Circuit Judge.


Plaintiffs-Appellants, George Coleman and Juanita Bruce, appeal the grant of summary judgment for defendants-appellees, General Electric Company, Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing Company and General Electric Ceramics, Inc. Upon examination of the briefs and record in this case and upon consideration of the oral arguments presented by the parties, we AFFIRM based upon the thorough and well-reasoned opinion of Judge R. Allan Edgar. See Coleman v. General Electric Company, 643 F. Supp. 1229 (E.D. Tenn. 1986). Furthermore, after examination of the record and briefs, we find no abuse of discretion in the district court orders denying class certification and awarding costs to appellees.

Accordingly, we AFFIRM the decision of the district court.
