Mar. 30, 2020) (Jolly, J.)Plaintiff brought suit against an insurance company for breach of contract, negligence and other causes of action stemming from alleged improper valuation of labor costs in determining actual cash value. After the United States District Court for the Northern District of Mississippi certified a class, Defendant appealed. The Fifth Circuit held that the district court did not abuse its discretion in certifying the breach of contract claim class. While Defendant had challenged certification on predominance grounds, contending that certain relevant insurance policy definitions were unambiguous and therefore the meaning of those terms could not be a predominant issue, the Court found the district court properly decided that the common issues (such as when Defendant may dispute or adjust an initial estimate) would predominate over individualized damages questions, which could be determined by a common formula. The Court also looked at superiority and found the district court did not abuse its discretion in finding superiority met by the thousands of class claims likely to be too small for individual litigation
