Motion for Class Certification Denied in N.Y. Federal Applied Underwriters Case



DOCUMENTS
  • Order


NEW YORK — A New York federal judge has refused to certify a class of hundreds of businesses who purchased workers’ compensation coverage from Applied Underwriters Inc. and its affiliates, ruling that a class action is not the superior form of adjudication of the dispute.

In a July 27 order, Judge John G. Koeltl of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York held that class action waivers and forum selection clauses signed by some or all of the putative class members will “create a host of issues” for the court.
