Highlight

A district court may permit class certification if the numerosity, commonality, fair and efficient adjudication, and adequate representation factors are met. Thirteen sub-factors are used to help determine the fair and efficient adjudication factor.
Only one question of law or fact is required to establish commonality.
When determining whether the representative parties will fairly and adequately protect the class's interests, the district court must find the representative parties' attorney will adequately represent the class's interests, the representative parties do not have a conflict of interest, and the representative parties have or can acquire adequate financial resources to assure the class's interests will not be harmed.
