In Leonard v. John Hancock Life Insurance Co., Amy represented a proposed class of insurance policy owners over allegations of breach of contract and false illustrations. Amy took several critical depositions of John Hancock’s witnesses, including its Chief Actuary, eliciting information that was central to the outcome of the case. The parties reached a class-wide settlement of $93 million in cash, before fees and expenses, plus non-cash benefits valued at up to $50.48 million, including a cost of insurance freeze for five years.
Amy and a team from Susman Godfrey have secured multiple settlements with various banks accused of conspiring to rig LIBOR in In re: Libor-Based Financial Instruments Antitrust Litigation. These settlements with Barclays, Citibank, Deutsche Bank, and HSBC provide a total settlement fund of $590 million for the benefit of a class of plaintiffs that includes cities, pension funds and others known as the “over-the-counter” purchasers. The plaintiff class represented by Amy and the Susman Godfrey team was the only proposed class in the multidistrict litigation to win class certification. Read more.
Amy represents a proposed class of victims who allege that MindGeek has violated state and federal sex trafficking and child pornography laws by knowingly receiving, distributing, and profiting from thousands of videos and images depicting child sexual abuse material. Amy led the briefing on opposing MindGeek’s motion to dismiss, which the court denied on the basis that Section 230 did not bar the claims – a huge win for Amy’s clients. Read the court opinion here.
