Yesterday, the Supreme Court of Texas extended the defendants’ win streak in defeating class actions to 13-1 since 2000. In Stonebridge Life Ins. Co. v. Pitts, No. 06-0655 (Tex. Aug. 31, 2007), the Court held that individual issues predominated because the defendants wanted to assert "equitable defenses" to the plaintiffs’ "money had and received" claim.
The only plaintiff who got any kind of victory in the Court? The Texas Attorney General, but even he had to start over in the trial court.
