Seventh Circuit Vacates Class Certification in Milwaukee IDEA Class Action

Via Paul Mollica, I see that the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit today issued an opinion in Jamie S. v. Milwaukee Public Schools -- a large and long-running IDEA class action -- that vacated the certification of the plaintiff class and wiped out a settlement agreement that the plaintiffs had entered into with the State of Wisconsin.  The case, which applies the Supreme Court's recent Wal-Mart decision, has troubling implications for IDEA litigation, as well as for class action practice in the Seventh Circuit generally.
