Two substantive petitions for rehearing were filed last Thursday in the Sirius XM case disposed of by Second Circuit summary order. One, filed by the Center for Class Action Fairness on behalf of its client, focuses on Judge Baer's racially discriminatory class certification order and the standing of class members to challenge it; the other, filed by another objector represented by attorney Steve Miller, focuses on the panel's failure to reconcile its affirmance of the $0 settlement with the precedents of other courts and the Class Action Fairness Act. Amicus petitions, if any, are due Thursday.
