This is a class action filed by our firm in Florida to recover amounts our client claimed were wrongfully withheld from class members in consumer contracts. The trial court held that our client failed to establish the important aspect of a class action that common issues predominated over individual issues. Our appeal of this decision resulted in a reversal of the trial court’s predominance ruling.Brodeur v Peterson Vacations.
Often to succeed in a class action you must carefully determine if there are so many individual issues for trial that a class is not appropriate. We carefully weigh these decisions to be sure that our clients and prospective class action law suit members get the results that they deserve.
