Supreme Court Recently Held That Unaccepted Offer of Judgment Will Not Moot Class Action

Until recently, a circuit split existed concerning whether an Offer of Judgment made prior to class certification could moot a class action.  On January 20, 2016, the Supreme Court resolved this issue finding that an unaccepted Offer of Judgment made pursuant to FRCP 68 will not preclude a class action suit. Campbell-Ewald Co. v. Gomez, No. 14-857 (U.S. Jan. 20, 2016).   As it relates to consumer litigation involving financial services, the decision will likely promote and foster additional class action litigation.
