California DRAM Indirect Purchasers Litigation

1 minute read


In this motion for class certification, Meg Guerin-Calvert, supported by Paul Godek, Loren Poulsen, and a Compass Lexecon team in Washington, DC, provided economic analysis on behalf of manufacturers of DRAM modules. Ms. Guerin-Calvert concluded that impact and damages allegedly suffered by members of a proposed class of state governments and agencies could not be assessed on a class-wide basis. In its opinion, the Court cited Ms. Guerin-Calvert’s expert report in its critical holdings and ultimately agreed with her conclusion that class certification was not appropriate. Defendants were represented by G. Charles Nierlich of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP, Ken O’Rourke and Steve Bergman of O’Melveny & Myers LLP, David Brownstein of Heller Ehrman LLP, Jonathan Swartz of Thelen LLP, Joshua Stambaugh of Kaye Scholer LLP, and Harrison Frahn of Simpson, Thacher & Bartlett LLP.
