Weitzner v. Sanofi Pasteur — civil / class action — affirmance — Scirica
Today the Third Circuit held that an unaccepted offer of judgment, filed prior to a plaintiff’s class certification motion, does not moot a plaintiff’s entire action. The court applied the recent Supreme Court ruling in Campbell-Ewald Co. v. Gomez, which the court recognized overruled its prior contrary holding in Weiss that an offer of complete relief generally moots the plaintiff’s claim. The court stated, “Beyond this, we decline to elaborate on the implications of Campbell-Ewald on our other holdings in Weiss.”
Joining Scirica were Shwartz and Roth. Arguing counsel were Carl Greco for the defendants and Todd Bank for the class plaintiffs.
