In a fifty-five page decision, a federal court in New Mexico granted the motion of Axinn’s client, Travelers Home and Marine Insurance Company, to dismiss, in its entirety, the complaint filed by a putative class of insureds. This dismissal was achieved within weeks of the courts’ eighty-seven page decision retaining jurisdiction over the case under the Class Action Fairness Act (“CAFA”) and denying the putative class’s motion to remand the case to state court in New Mexico. See Valdez v. Metropolitan Property & Casualty Insurance Company, et al., No. CIV 11-0507 JB/KBM (D.N.M. March 31, 2012).
