This case was filed on July 1, 2015. (Filing 1.) Defendants have yet to file an answer
to the Complaint.
On August 11, 2015, Plaintiff filed a motion for class certification and stay of briefing.
(Filing 18.) Plaintiff claims that she filed this motion at this early stage of the case to avoid
any attempt by Defendants to “pick off” Plaintiff with an offer of judgment. Plaintiff
maintains that some courts have found that an offer of judgment renders a case moot when
the plaintiff has not moved for class certification at the time the offer of judgment is made.
Plaintiff asserts that the Eighth Circuit has not directly addressed this issue.
Therefore, out of an abundance of caution, Plaintiff’s request that briefing be stayed
will be granted. Plaintiff’s motion for class certification will be held in abeyance pending
further development of the case. Plaintiff’s motion will, however, be terminated for
statistical purposes, and the motion may be renewed by Plaintiff at a later date. At that time,
a briefing schedule will be established in accordance with the rules of this Court.
IT IS ORDERED that Plaintiff’s Motion for Class Certification shall be held in
abeyance pending further development of the record in this case. The motion shall be
terminated by the Clerk of Court for statistical purposes, and Plaintiff may renew the motion
at a later date in order to establish a briefing schedule.
DATED August 18, 2015.
