The next major step in the process is certifying the lawsuit as a class action. A certification order is an order by the court permitting the lawsuit to proceed as a class action and defining who the members of the class are. If this order is granted, each class member will likely be sent a notice confirming their membership in the class and indicating what their options are moving forward. The timelines for such certification hearings vary from a few months to as long as two years from the time a suit is filed. Therefore, it is difficult to state with certainty at this stage when the certification hearing for this claim will occur.
