ORDER and Final Judgment: The Court has jurisdiction over the subject matter of the Action, the Class Representative, all Class Members, and the Defendants. The Court, having previously found that this Action meets the requirements of Rule 23(a) and 23(b)(3) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure for certification as a class action, and having previously directed notice of the pendency of this Action as a class action be given to the members of the Class and such notice having been given, now f inds again and finally confirms that the prerequisites for a class action under Federal Rules of Civil Procedure 23 (a) and (b)(3) have been satisfied in that: i) the number of Class Members is so numerous that joinder of all members thereof is impra cticable; ii) there are questions of law and fact common to the Class; iii) the claims of the Class Representative are typical of the claims of the Class he seeks to represent; iv) the Class Representative and Plaintiffs Co-Lead Counsel have and will fairly and adequately represent the interests of the Class; v) the questions of law and fact common to the members of the Class predominate over any questions affecting only individual members of the Class; and vi) a class action is superior to othe r available methods for the fair and efficient adjudication of the controversy. See order and judgement for details. The Court finds that all parties and their counsel have complied with each requirement of Rule 11 of the Federal Rules of Civil Proce dure as to all proceedings herein.
