Moen v. Regents of the University of California

(California Court of Appeal) – Reversed decertification of a class of retired University of California employees who claimed they were denied promised health insurance benefits. The retirees, who had worked at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, appealed the trial court’s ruling that decertified the class for lack of commonality. On appeal, the First Appellate District held that the trial court’s decertification ruling had relied on erroneous legal standards.
