The en banc Eleventh Circuit announced on March 13 that it would rehear Drazen v. Pinto and vacated the panel opinion. As discussed in our post on the panel decision, the case addresses whether class members who lack Article III standing with respect to the claims asserted by the class are nonetheless permitted to receive benefits from a class settlement. The case also features a question the panel chose not to decide, which is whether a receipt of a single improper cell phone call is enough to confer standing under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
The case is tentatively set to be reheard in June.
