Becker Glynn secures dismissal of multi-million dollar federal class action

The Firm successfully moved to dismiss a multi-million dollar class action brought in federal court against a European financial company. Some 7,000 plaintiffs asserted discrimination claims against one of the firm’s European clients. After successfully changing the venue of the case from the Eastern to the Southern District of New York, the firm filed motion for summary judgment on the ground that plaintiffs had failed to comply with the applicable statute of limitations. In a ruling by Judge Colleen McMahon, the district court dismissed the discrimination claims with prejudice. The case was related to a prior action brought by 30 plaintiffs against the same European client. In that case, the firm secured a verdict for the client after a two-week jury trial in federal court.
