Sutherland represents automotive finance company in Equal Credit Opportunity Act case.

Description
Sutherland secured reversal by the Second Circuit of district court's dismissal of state law counterclaims in a purported nationwide class action brought against an automotive finance company, our client. We asserted state law counterclaims against the class representatives and certain putative class members. The district court dismissed the counterclaims on jurisdictional grounds. In its reversal, the appellate court held that the presence of state law counterclaims may make it necessary for a district court to restrict the scope of a class action so that the case may be tried in a manageable fashion.
