Civil litigator John Nadolenco focuses his practice on defending class actions—including consumer, privacy and employment lawsuits—and providing counsel on other high-stakes cases.

For example, John is lead counsel in Spokeo, Inc. v. Robins, in which the United States Supreme Court made it harder for plaintiffs to bring no-injury lawsuits. John recently represented Volkswagen in dozens of putative class actions alleging the company improperly installed emissions-defeat devices on some of its diesel cars. John has also defended companies in a variety of other class and individual actions, including claims alleging improper consumer charges and practices, false and misleading advertising, defective products, unauthorized call recording under California’s Invasion of Privacy Act (CIPA), violations of the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), Internet privacy violations and improper tracking via computer-based cookies, and improper use of smartphone and tablet applications (apps). John has extensive experience defending wage-hour cases, including cases alleging meal-period, rest-period and off-the-clock violations, as well as claims alleging incorrect pay statements and waiting-time and other penalties.

Here John discusses a landmark case in which he defended a major retailer in one of the biggest class action cases to go to trial in California.
