Leaders in Class Action Litigation
CaseyGerry has been at the forefront of class action litigation. The firm’s attorneys take on leadership roles for the plaintiffs to help spearhead the litigation and keep affected individuals informed as cases progress. At CaseyGerry, we specialize in class actions for consumers who have been negatively affected by automotive defects, banking, data breaches, technology defects and more. Below are some of the cases in which CaseyGerry recently has been involved.
CaseyGerry was honored to play a role in the prosecution and resolution of multidistrict litigation arising out of the Volkswagen diesel emissions scandal. This case resulted in a historic consumer settlement estimated at over $16 billion. David S. Casey, Jr. served on the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee leading that litigation by appointment of Judge Charles Breyer of the United Stated District Court for the Northern District of California.
CaseyGerry was also involved in centralized class action litigation against Wells Fargo and National General which arose out of allegations that the companies wrongfully imposed or required certain car loan applicants to purchase automobile insurance when they already had insurance in place. CaseyGerry partner David S. Casey, Jr. was appointed to serve as Liaison Counsel in that litigation. In November 2019, U.S. District Judge Andrew J. Guilford granted final approval of a $393.5 million settlement in this matter.
In 2018, partner Gayle M. Blatt was appointed to the Plaintiffs’ Executive Committee for In re: Apple Inc. Device Performance Litigation by U.S. District Judge Edward J. Davila of the Northern District of California. The cases centralized in the Apple MDL allege that Apple intentionally slowed the performance of older iPhones through software updates.
CaseyGerry perseveres through complex litigation until the end. Fourteen years after the Exxon Valdez tanker crashed and spilled oil in Prince William Sound, Alaska, Judge H. Russell Holland ordered Exxon Mobil Corp to pay nearly $7 billion in damages and interest. CaseyGerry was the only San Diego law firm involved in this historic case. We represented more than 1,000 fishermen affected by the spill.
