Selling Consumer Products in the States: Focus New Jersey

Posted on October 5th, 2017 | Author: Steven A. Karg

Yesterday, the New Jersey Supreme Court issued its long-awaited opinion in Dugan v. TGI Fridays, Inc. __ N.J. __ (2017).   The opinion, which you can read here, provides a good summary of the most recent law governing class certification in New Jersey.   It also provides guidance on the hotly-debated issues of who can be an “aggrieved consumer” under the New Jersey Truth in Consumer Contracts, Warranty and Notices Act (the “Act”), why that issue can affect the predominance prong of the class certification standard, and what type of right might be considered “clearly established” under the “Act”.
