Supreme Court denies cert in DeBeers Diamond class action settlement

Well, that was quick.  Days after we reported that some objectors to the settlement (earlier approved en banc by the Third Circuit) had petitioned for certiorari,  the Supreme Court denied the petition.  Murphy v. Sullivan, 2012 WL 779996 (U.S. Apr 02, 2012) (NO. 11-1111).

Is another petition or appeal likely in the DeBeers Diamond Class Action Suit?

A case captioned Quinn v. Sullivan has found its way to the Supreme Court's docket sheet. At this point, no cert. petition has been filed, but Justice Alito has granted an application to extend the filing deadline until May 3, 2012. The docket number is #11A863.

Thanks, Adam. Susan Quinn must be another objector. The petition I noted earlier, filed by objectors Murray and Luke, was denied.
