In re: Western States Wholesale Natural Gas Antitrust Litigation
Michelle Burtis was retained as an expert by counsel to defendants in the multi-district class action In re: Western States Wholesale Natural Gas Antitrust Litigation. Dr. Burtis advised on issues related to class certification and found that plaintiffs' experts’ analysis did not establish that the impact on the proposed class members could be established with common evidence. On March 30, 2017, the US District Court for the District of Nevada found that the plaintiffs had failed to establish the necessary requirements for certification. CRA’s team was led by Dr. Burtis and included Stephanie Riche and Ian Holmes.
