The Eighth Circuit reversed a federal district court's decision to certify a class of plaintiff homeowners against General Mills. According to the lawsuit, General Mills allowed pollutants to decrease the plaintiffs' property values. Unfortunately for the plaintiffs, the Eighth Circuit determined that their injury was too atypical. It's a major victory for General Mills to say the least.
And it seems to place limits on the earlier SCOTUS case of Tyson Foods Inc. v. Bouaphaeko in which the court based its certification on statistical evidence of commonality despite individualized injuries.
