Supreme Court's Ruling Ensures Right of MDL Litigants to Timely Appeal

US Supreme Court

The U.S. Supreme Court issued a significant ruling last week for litigants in multidistrict litigation. Multidistrict proceedings (commonly referred to as "MDLs") consist of multiple civil cases in federal court involving similar factual issues that are coordinated or consolidated for discovery proceedings and pretrial motions before one federal judge. MDLs are intended to achieve efficiency and avoid conflicting rulings that might occur if similar cases were litigated in different courts. Recent examples of MDLs in which Lieff Cabraser plays a leading role include the GM ignition-switch litigation and the Toyota sudden-acceleration lawsuits.
