Case Description: 

In this case, the 11th Circuit, following its precedential opinion in Stein v. Buccaneers Limited Partnership, held that an offer of judgment to a named plaintiff in an uncertified class action does not moot either the named plaintiff’s individual claims or his ability to represent a class. The defendant, Harvard Drug Group, filed a petition for certiorari asking the Supreme Court to hold the case pending its disposition of the petition raising the same issues in Campbell-Ewald Co. v. Gomez. We prepared a brief in opposition. After it granted the petition for certiorari in Campbell-Ewald, the Court held the petition in this case pending its decision on the merits in Campbell-Ewald, and the petition was denied after Campbell-Ewald was decided.
