We represent Ingenio, Inc. in a class action in federal district court in San Francisco (Northern District of California). The plaintiff and putative class representative sued Ingenio in California state court, alleging consumer fraud claims based on the way Ingenio allegedly marketed and sold an advertising services program, and seeking the certification of a nationwide class. We removed the case to federal court under the Class Action Fairness Act and, soon after removal, moved for summary judgment, on the ground the advertising program alleged in the complaint was actually provided by an entity other than Ingenio. The district court agreed, granted summary judgment to Ingenio, and entered final judgment. The plaintiff has appealed the district court’s judgment to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, arguing (among other things) that the district court should have granted plaintiff leave to amend his complaint to name the proper party-defendants. Long v. Ingenio, Inc., No. C 10-5761 RS (N.D. Cal. filed Oct. 11, 2011) (order granting summary judgment).
