No Jurisdiction Over Attempted Appeal From Class Action Orders

In Rainbow Group, Ltd. v. Wagoner, the Third Court of Appeals has dismissed a class action defendant’s interlocutory appeal from an order denying its motion to decertify the class and an order granting the plaintiffs’ motion to amend the certification.  The court of appeals held that it lacked jurisdiction becausethe first order was not subject to an interlocutory appeal and because the defendant failed to timely file a notice of appeal from the second order.
