Alcoa Oasis Decking Lawsuit update:
On September 22, 2015, the Court denied Plaintiffs’ Motion for Class Certification. Plaintiffs asked the First Circuit Court of Appeals to review the district court’s decision, but the First Circuit Court of Appeals denied the request. Given that the Court denied Plaintiffs’ Motion for Class Certification, Plaintiffs are not able to pursue their claims on behalf of a class at this point. Therefore, the named Plaintiffs are continuing to pursue their claims individually.
Defendants filed motions for summary judgment asking the Court to dismiss Plaintiffs’ individual claims. The Parties have submitted briefs regarding the motions, and oral argument is scheduled for April 26, 2017. If the Court denies the motions as Plaintiffs have requested, Plaintiffs’ claims will proceed to trial. If Plaintiffs prevail at trial, they will have the ability to appeal the Court’s Order denying the class certification motion.
