Partner Richard Goldfarb authored an article in Law360 titled “POM Finds Class Decertification Ruling Wonderful.” The article discusses the recent decision in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California to decertify the class in an action against POM Wonderful LLC over health claims about its pomegranate juice.

The decision on the class certification, rooted in a recent U.S. Supreme Court case, Comcast Corp. v. Behrend, centered on the inability of the plaintiffs to show that their damages arose from defendant’s actions that created legal liability, i.e., for a product that millions of consumers purchase for myriad reasons, damages resulting from alleged misrepresentations will not be uniform or amenable to class proof.
