- Defeated a motion for class certification in a putative class action filed in California state court against our client, a major food manufacturer, alleging that the packaging for a specific type of dog treat misrepresented that the product was “wholesome.” The plaintiffs sought approximately $8.4 million on behalf of the putative class, plus punitive damages and attorneys’ fees under California’s consumer protection statutes. We defeated class certification, and plaintiffs agreed to drop all claims.
