Wystan Ackerman has a post about an interesting class action situation: If you succeed in knocking out the named plaintiff in a putative class action because his claim was not timely, can a new plaintiff with a timely claim intervene in that suit to preserve the putative class’s statute of limitations period from the time of the suit’s filing? Or must he file a new suit, effectively shortening the class period?

Wystan analyzes Grainger v. Ottowa County, 2024 WL 64093 (6th Cir. Jan. 5, 2024), in which the court affirmed the trial court’s denial of intervention as of right, as well as permissive intervention.
