Berry v. Federal Kemper Life Assur. Co. D-0101-CV-2000-2602 04/01/02 1st Judicial Dist of Santa Fe NM Amicus brief filed in opposition to motion for class certification. Issue briefed is the nationwide class action certification would be inappropriate because state laws governing disclosure of model premium rates as well as policyholder right to remedies differ from state to state; certification would defeat regulators' ability to regulate according to respective state laws. Motion for leave to file brief denied.
