Richmond Co-Managing Partner Rob Wise spoke with Law360 following the U.S. Supreme Court's refusal to reconsider controversial class certifications involving a washer defect suit, even in light of the high court's landmark ruling in Comcast v. Behrend.

In the article, "High Court's Whirlpool Snub Invites More Defect Suits," Rob comments on the potential heightened exposure to high-stakes litigation for product manufacturers following the high court's decision.

Rob also weighed in on a separate Law360 article, "High Court's Whirlpool Snub Casts Doubt On Comcast's Reach," where he offers up his insights to the significance of Comcast v. Behrend, which many defense attorneys thought would universally raise the bar for plaintiffs to obtain class certification.
