Comcast lawyers agree to shrink class size

The Supreme Court denied class certification to a group of Comcast subscribers in March

If at first you don’t succeed, redesign your proposed class action. That’s the tactic that lawyers for a group of Comcast Corp. subscribers are taking, after the Supreme Court shot down their first attempt at class certification, Thomson Reuters reports.

Two million subscribers in Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey filed the suit, in which they accused the cable provider of creating a monopoly by buying up competitors and overcharging for services. But the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 in March that the class was too diverse in both their location and their claims, and did not have a precise method for determining damages.
