In an action brought under the Commodity Exchange Act involving allegations that defendant cornered a futures market, district court's certification of a plaintiff class is affirmed where: 1) at least one member of the certified class has a plausible claim to have suffered damages and thus the requirement of standing is satisfied; 2) defendants have not shown that the class definition clearly was overbroad; and 3) it would be premature to deny a class certification because of a potential conflict of interest that is and may not become actual.
