Dykema Wins Major Victory in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals

 

On behalf of its client, Kia Motors America, Dykema today won a major victory in the Ninth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals, which granted Dykema's petition for en banc review of the court's three-judge panel decision throwing out a $210 million nationwide class-action settlement for certain vehicle owners. The Ninth Circuit convenes its 11-judge en banc panel to rehear only a small handful of cases each year. Oral arguments are set for the week of September 24.

Member and West Coast Chair of Dykema's Nationwide Appellate Practice, James Azadian, led the Kia appeal team, supported by Members Dommond Lonnie, Brian Newman, and Michael Wippler.
