1/11/2010 - Diebold ERISA Litigation
In March, Judge Peter Economus of the United States District Court for the Northern District of Ohio, Eastern Division, denied plaintiffs’ motion for class certification in the Diebold ERISA Litigation. The Court’s ruling was based on his finding that the plaintiffs could not adequately represent the class due to conflicts of interest between members of the proposed Class. David Ross, supported by Laurel Van Allen and Gina Vinogradsky in our Chicago office, submitted a report on behalf of defendants on the conflict issue. Defendants were represented by Victoria Gorokhovich and Jeremy Blumenfeld at Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP in Philadelphia.
