« New decision on insurer liability under the UCL: Hughes v. Progressive Direct Ins. Co. | Main | More on Sullivan v. Oracle Corp. »

Friday, July 08, 2011



Generally, if a named plaintiff is a member of the class he seeks to represent and has claims typical to the class, he will be considered an adequate representative. Richmond v. Dart Industries (1981) 29 Cal.3d 462, 474.

Possibly so. It may be that both the trial and appellate courts read more into the "adequacy" element than the Supreme Court's precedents warrant. On the other hand, as a practical matter, it should not be particularly difficult to meet the standard stated in this decision if it stays on the books. All you have to do is make your class representatives' declarations more detailed.
