12:51 pm
jury's formula for determining the award was flawed and more crucially, that the group of more than 3,000 workers doesn't pass legal muster as a so-called class, because some of them suffered no injuries. >> this case could either cut back on class actions a little or a lot. >> john coffee is a professor at columbia law school. >> if all they talk about is the need for a more typical, more representative plaintiff to represent the class, that's a small injury. if they were to require either that you have to prove every member of the class had standing before the class could be certified, that would be a major barrier that might prevent many consumer injury or tort cases from ever being certified. >> how high that bar is raised matters a lot to workers at the low end of the wage scale. the stakes are high for low wage workers who lack resources to
