On August 4, 2023, WLF urged the Supreme Court to review, and ultimately to overturn, a deeply flawed Sixth Circuit decision in a multi-district litigation (MDL) proceeding. In its amicus brief, WLF asks the Court to decide whether due process permits a district court overseeing an MDL to apply nonmutual offensive collateral estoppel to make the results of a handful of bellwether trials binding on every other pending or future case in the MDL. WLF’s brief was prepared with generous pro bono support from Jonathan Tam, Matthew Steinberg, and Allison Ozurovich of Dechert LLP.
