Paul Halasz and Matthew Miller Discussed New Holding on NJ Class Action Offers Of Judgment

In an article published by Law360 on November 27, partner Paul J. Halasz and associate Matthew Stuart Miller discussed a recent NJ trial court ruling holding that a defendant in a putative class action could not "pick off" a class representative by filing an offer of judgment that would effectively satisfy the representative's individual monetary claim. The authors noted that the decision in Gambrell v. Hess Corp. Inc. aligns state court practice with prevailing authority within the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, which curbs defense strategies to moot class claims by offering a judgment in full to named plaintiffs before class certification motion practice.
