A multidistrict litigation (MDL) was establish to consolidate for pretrial proceedings approximately 60 cases in which plaintiffs alleged that defendant banks conspired to artificially suppress the daily interest rate benchmark LIBOR.  In one such case, Gelboim v. Bank of America Corp., 135 S. Ct. 897 (2015) (No. 13-1174), the district court dismissed the complaint in its entirety.  Plaintiffs in that case appealed, and the Second Circuit, on its own motion, dismissed the appeal for want of appellate jurisdiction, ruling that because other of the consolidated cases had survived motions to dismiss, the order appealed from did not dispose of all claims in the MDL action.  The Supreme Court reversed, holding that cases consolidated for MDL pretrial proceedings ordinarily retain their separate identities and, therefore, an order disposing of one of the discrete cases in its entirety is an appealable final decision under 28 U.S.C. § 1291.  The Court, however, limited its holding to cases consolidated for only pretrial proceedings, stating that it expressed no opinion on whether an order dismissing one of multiple cases combined in an all-purpose consolidation qualifies under § 1291 as a final decision appealable as of right.
