Medical Monitoring Suitable For Class Action Treatment
Lockheed Martin Corp., et al. v. The Superior Court of San Bernardino County [Roslyn Carrillo]
Mealey Publications -- SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- March 4, 2003
In a ruling of first impression, the California Supreme Court said that medical monitoring is suitable for class action treatment. “[N]o per se or categorical bar exists to a court’s finding medical monitoring claims appropriate for class treatment, so long as any individual issues the claims present are manageable,” the court said.
