Law360 Reports on Shook Win in $150 Million Class Action Claim Dismissal

Law360 reported on a Shook win for clients against importers’ accusations in “1st Circ. Frees Puerto Rican Agency From $150M Fees Suit,” calling it “a precedential decision.”

Shook won a critical appellate victory resulting in the dismissal of a putative class action challenging the constitutionality of more than $150 million in Enhanced Security Fees (ESFs) charged in connection with a cargo container scanning program at the port of San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Partner Mark Campbell and Associate Matt Light, with assistance from Partner Patrick Gregory, represented Rapiscan Systems, Inc. and its affiliate, S2 Services Puerto Rico, LLC, the Ports Authority’s contracted scanning providers in this action, in Dantzler v. S2 Services Puerto Rico, LLC.
