We have successfully prosecuted and defended class actions in state and Federal courts throughout the nation. Our representation of plaintiffs includes Brady v. Air Line Pilots Association, in which Allen Press and Joe Jacobson tried a five-week jury trial in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey on behalf of nearly 2,300 former TWA pilots who alleged that their union breached its duty of fair representation in failing to protect the pilots’ seniority. Joe Jacobson also handled In re: BankAmerica Corp. Securities Litigation, in which he represented a class of shareholders who alleged violations of state and Federal securities laws arising out of the 1998 merger of NationsBank and BankAmerica. The cases settled for $53 million and $490 million, respectively.
Our representation of defendants includes defending a putative class action against a company that was accused of defrauding customers by allegedly charging hidden fees, and a landlord who allegedly violated a state Security Deposit law.
Our experience representing plaintiffs and defendants in class actions sets us apart from most other class action attorneys who represent plaintiffs or defendants, but not both.
