The Eighth Circuit has denied a petition by defendants to appeal CGL’s successful certification of a class composed of commercial food preparers in a lawsuit alleging anticompetitive conduct in the pork industry.  The commercial food preparer class represented by CGL remains certified, and we are preparing for a trial.

CGL partner and co-lead counsel Blaine Finley briefed and argued the motion for class certification before the district court.
