Netflix Faces Class Action in Subscriber DVD Lawsuit

A federal judge granted class-action certification to Netflix Inc. subscribers in their lawsuit against the company and Wal-Mart Stores Inc. for an alleged agreement to monopolize the DVD market.

U.S. District Judge Phyllis Hamilton said that the subscribers bringing suit against the companies in 2009 were “united by common and overlapping issues of fact and law,” in an order dated Dec. 23 and filed in federal court in Oakland, California.
