Ms. Mummert has focused her practice in prosecuting complex securities, antitrust, fiduciary and consumer protection class actions.

She served as part of the teams that prosecuted a number of securities fraud class actions, including In re General Motors Corp. Securities Litigation, which settled for $300 million, In re Oppenheimer Champion Fund Securities Litigation and In re Oppenheimer Core Bond Fund Securities Litigation, both of which settled for a combined $100 million after successfully opposing Defendants’ request for dismissal, and In re Take-Two Interactive Securities Litigation where investors achieved a $20.1 million settlement. Ms. Mummert also played a significant role in the prosecution of In re Amgen Inc.

In protecting consumers’ rights, Ms. Mummert has litigated a variety of cases, including those involving pharmaceutical and nutritional supplement products, rental-car fees, food and beverages, and diesel engines. For instance, Ms. Mummert served as one of the lead attorneys who obtained class certification of a nationwide class against Avis Rent-A-Car Systems, LLC and Budget Rent-A-Car Systems, Inc., for allegedly charging customers a deceptive fee for earning frequent flyer miles in connection with their car rentals, a case which resulted in a $13.7 million recovery for the class. Ms. Mummert also served as lead counsel in a breach of fiduciary duty action against the Board of Pensions for one of the largest Christian denominations in the United States and obtained a full recovery for each of the plaintiffs.

She also served on the litigation team that prosecuted the data breach action against Target after hackers stole the personal and financial information of up to 110 million Target customers during the height of the 2013 holiday season, and the team that brought the concussive injury case against the National Hockey League for its failure to disclose to its players the long-term risk of neurodegenerative disorders and diseases involved with repeated head traumas that have become inherent to the League.

Ms. Mummert served as co-lead counsel in In re Aftermarket Automotive Sheet Metal Indirect Purchaser Litigation, which led to a $9.85 million recovery, and participated on the litigation teams prosecuting several other antitrust class actions, including In re Disposable Contact Lens Antitrust Litigation, and In re Dental Supplies Antitrust Litigation.
