Second Circuit issues ruling in case captioned In re Literary Works in Elect. Databases Copyright Litig., on remand from the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in Reed Elsevier, Inc. v. Muchnick: Today's majority opinion of a three-judge Second Circuit panel summarizes the court's holding as follows: "Although we reject objectors' arguments regarding the release, we conclude that the district court abused its discretion in certifying the class and approving the Settlement, because the named plaintiffs failed to adequately represent the interests of all class members."

As a result, the Second Circuit has vacated the district court's order certifying the class and approving the settlement and has remanded the case for further proceedings.
