Class Actions—Tolling of Statute of Limitations

­China Agritech, Inc. v. Resh, No. 17-432

Under American Pipe & Construction Co. v. Utah, the filing of a class action that is ultimately deemed defective tolls the claims of the absent class members.  The Court granted certiorari to decide whether tolling applies only if the absent class member subsequently brings an individual suit or instead also if the absent class member brings a new class action.
