Ohio Supreme Court Limits Class Action Suits

The Ohio Supreme Court in Stammco, L.L.C., v. United Tel. Co. of Ohio has rejected a proposed class action lawsuit against a telephone company and in doing so, tightened restrictions on class action lawsuits.  The Ohio Employer Law Blog has a good summary of the decision and its implications for Ohio employers:

“Stamcco is a huge victory for Ohio businesses. It is now that much harder to establish a class action, confirming that Ohio’s class-action rules fall in line with their federal counterparts.”
