Superior Court Refuses to Permit "Pick Off" Of Class Representative

Posted In Class Actions

Stratton v. American Independent Insurance Company, C.A. 082-12-12 JRS CCLD ( May 11, 2011)

In this unusual fact pattern, a defendant paid the class representative the most the representative might have received for himself if the class claim were won and then argued the class action was moot.  The Court disagreed and did a careful analysis of why the class action could proceed despite the defense effort to "pick off" the class representative.
