Drew Hansen, Walter Peña and Ben Broderick Win Victory in Class Action for Client C.R. England, Inc.

Drew Hansen, Walter Peña and Ben Broderick recently defeated a class action lawsuit against their client C.R. England, Inc., the nation's largest refrigerated trucking company. Defense counsel was able to elicit testimony from the plaintiff that made the case ripe for summary judgment and ill-suited for class certification. Defense counsel further learned during discovery that the named plaintiff had filed for bankruptcy, which meant that his claim belonged to the bankruptcy estate. At the recommendation of defense counsel, C.R. England, Inc. purchased the claim from the trustee, nullifying plaintiff's standing. When informed of this development, plaintiff agreed to drop his class action allegations.
