Plaintiffs’ attorneys say that they are not worried about the state of class action litigation in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s holding that plaintiffs who bring class actions cannot cap damages to avoid federal jurisdiction. The Court’s ruling in Standard Fire Insurance Co. v. Greg Knowles, No. 11-1450 (March 19, 2013), foreclosed attempts by plaintiffs to cap their damages to avoid the $5 million jurisdictional threshold set by the Class Action Fairness Act (“CAFA”), which permits the removal of state cases when the amount in controversy exceeds $5 million. While some legal experts have suggested that the ruling represents a victory for defendants trying to keep class actions out of state courts, a number of plaintiffs’ attorneys described the holding as a non-event. In particular, they cited the small number of class actions in which the amount in controversy is less than $5 million to begin with. Despite their ostensible ambivalence, plaintiffs’ attorneys are still litigating in a more challenging environment post-CAFA, as the statute is intended to make class actions more easily removable to federal courts.
