Class Action Defense

A small claim from one individual can quickly turn into a large lawsuit from many individuals, and unsuspecting businesses are suddenly forced to litigate a once insubstantial issue.  The Law Offices of Kevin J. Dolley represents businesses, corporations, and other employers in these disputes.

Class action lawsuits frequently involved wage, hour, discrimination, and retaliation complaints from past or current employees.  Attorney Kevin Dolley has the experience, knowledge, and skills necessary to defend against these claims, whether it be in federal or state court.

Federal and Missouri Class Action Law

Attorney Kevin J. Dolley is highly familiar with the Federal rules governing class actions, including Rule 23 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, and 28 U.S.C.A. ยง 1332.  He also understands the process of removing class action suits filed in state court to federal court, a move thought to be quite beneficial to Defendants.  Under the recently enacted Class Action Fairness Act, federal courts now have original jurisdiction for class actions where the amount in controversy exceeds $5 million and at least one plaintiff is a citizen of a state different from that of the defendant.  This Act eased the requirements for filing in federal court, thus reducing Plaintiff forum-shopping for class action friendly courts.  Attorney Kevin Dolley also possesses extensive knowledge of Missouri Rules of Civil Procedure governing class action suits under Rule 52.08. 

Substantive Law and Procedure

A crucial aspect of defending a class action suit is the ability to understand the substantive law behind the claim while navigating the procedure.  Attorney Kevin J. Dolley has extensive experience in all areas of employment law, especially in the areas of discrimination and retaliation.  This keen understanding plays a crucial role in determining the strategy to be utilized in defending a class action claim.
