Best Buy Co. v. Barrera, 07-0028
In a class action suit brought against Best Buy to recover restocking fees deducted from returns made on certain returned merchandise, a court of appeals decision affirming a trial court's class certification is reversed as the court finds individualized inquiry will predominate over common issues of proof, making the claim inappropriate for class certification.
