On January 10, 2022, the U.S. Supreme Court vacated a Fourth Circuit opinion and remanded for reconsideration in light of intervening Supreme Court precedent. This outcome was a victory for WLF, which filed the only amicus brief in the case. As WLF’s brief showed, the Fourth Circuit’s decision was inconsistent with the Supreme Court’s recent TransUnion decision. There, the Court said that allowing uninjured class members to maintain suit in federal court violates core separation-of-powers principles. WLF hopes that the Fourth Circuit will properly apply the precedent on remand.
