Last week, a federal judge in New Jersey ruled that a group of magazine subscribers could not try to dismiss their suit against Venable client Synapse Group. In his ruling, the judge said that after six years of litigation, a voluntary dismissal without prejudice would be extremely prejudicial to Synapse.

In June, the plaintiffs sought to voluntarily dismiss their suit alleging deceptive magazine renewal notices against Synapse claiming the New Jersey federal court lacked subject matter jurisdiction under the Class Action Fairness Act. They wanted to pursue the suit in state court following a March ruling by the Third Circuit which determined the plaintiffs lacked Article III standing to seek injunctive relief.
