Law360 Analyzes Hydroxatone Settlement and Highlights Concerns for Objectors in Class Actions
January 27, 2014

In the article "A Lesson For Objectors In Class Action Settlements," Law360 analyzes Sabol v. Hydroxatone, in which Kelley Drye successfully represented Hydroxatone in a consumer class action lawsuit filed in New Jersey. Kelley Drye's team for this matter included partners Joseph A. Boyle, Michael C. Lynch, Lauri A. Mazzuchetti and associate Michael Innes. The article reports on the Hydroxatone case and key factors which objectors must consider in any class action including: a careful assessment of the strength of your objections before filing, seizing the opportunity offer to participate in ongoing negotiations, not to plead what you may be unable to prove, and to consider the restrictions imposed on courts by general legal principles favoring settlement.
