Roach v. T.L. Cannon Corp., No. 13-3070 (2d Cir. 2015)Annotate this Case
Plaintiffs filed suit against Cannon, alleging violations of federal and state labor laws. On appeal, plaintiffs challenged the district court's denial of class certification under Rule 23(b)(3) based on the district court's belief that damages were not measurable on a classwide basis. The court held that the Supreme Court's decision in Comcast Corp. v. Behrend does not mandate that class certification under Rule 23(b)(3) require a finding that damages are capable of measurement on a classwide basis. Therefore, the court vacated the district court's order and remanded.
