Ward v. United Airlines, Inc.
ORDER DENYING PLAINTIFFS MOTION TO AMEND THE CLASS DEFINITION by Hon. William Alsup denying 45 Motion for Leave to File.(whalc1, COURT STAFF) (Filed on 4/12/2016)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
UNITED AIRLINES, INC., and DOES 1
through 50, inclusive,
PLAINTIFF’S MOTION TO
AMEND THE CLASS
No. C 15-02309 WHA
For the Northern District of California
United States District Court
CHARLES E. WARD, individually, and on
behalf of all others similarly situated,
The Court granted plaintiff’s motion for class certification and certified a class that
included individuals that worked for United up through the date of the complaint. Plaintiffs
request that the Court amend the class definition to extend to the date of the final judgment to
“have the class period ending date move forward in time, day after day, until either final
judgment or up until the time the format of the wage statements are corrected” (Dkt. No. 45
at 2). Defendants do not oppose plaintiff’s motion to the extent the termination date was a
clerical error, but does not stipulate to the proposed modification (Dkt. No. 46).
The Court intended the class period to end on the date plaintiff filed the complaint.
Plaintiff’s proposal to amend the class period to remain open as the case progresses,
encompassing each new hire and resulting in rolling damages calculation is DENIED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: April 12, 2016.
