The defendant has the heavy burden of showing that voluntary cessation of unlawful conduct moots a case, while the plaintiff has the burden of showing that conduct is capable of repetition yet evading review.
Such circumstances include the possible use of motions for preliminary injunction, emergency stays, and expedited appeals. Should a plaintiff fail to attempt to avail itself of these procedural opportunities, courts are disinclined to regard the matter as evading review.
Lyons , a challenge to a city policy of using choke holds to subdue suspected criminals, the Court held that a generalized showing that conduct might recur was not sufficient to trigger the exception. However, in Honig v. Doe , the Court limited Lyons. Litigation involving the regulation of abortion, 44 elections, 45 and press access to trials 46 has proceeded despite claims of mootness without any apparent basis for a finding of probable recurrence.
Class actions raise the question of whether the claims of the class become moot when the individual claims of the class representatives are moot. In litigation involving recurrent conduct of short duration, pleading a claim as a class action before the conduct terminates may offer a greater likelihood of avoiding mootness.
Once certified, the case does not become moot as long as the challenged conduct threatens a member of the class. Thus, class actions shift the mootness inquiry from whether there is a reasonable likelihood that the conduct will again affect the plaintiff to whether there is a reasonable likelihood that the conduct will affect the plaintiff class.
Iowa , the first significant case dealing with the issue of mootness in class action practice, plaintiff, on behalf of a class, challenged a state requirement that a petitioner for divorce reside in the state for one year prior to filing the petition. The Court, nevertheless, found the case not to be moot because the certified class had acquired a legal status separate from the plaintiff and there were members of the class with live claims.
Bowman Transportation Company , the Court appeared to relax the Sosna rule. He did not, therefore, present a claim capable of repetition, yet evading review. Nonetheless, the Court held that so long as there were members of the certified class with live claims, the case was not moot. The classes in Sosna and Franks were certified before the question of mootness arose. Geraghty , a leading case in this area, the plaintiff sued on behalf of a class challenging parole release guidelines.
Although the plaintiff completed his sentence while his appeal was pending, mooting his personal challenge to the guidelines, the Supreme Court held that he could, nevertheless, pursue an appeal from the final judgment on the ground that class certification was wrongly denied. Geraghty specifically holds that a putative class action does not necessarily become moot when the claim of the named plaintiff expires after denial of class certification. Rather, the plaintiff in Geraghty retained a personal stake in his asserted right to represent a certified class, a stake sufficient to promote vigorous advocacy.
Roper , the Court held that the defendant may not moot a proposed class action prior to certification by making a full offer of judgment to the individual plaintiffs and receiving such judgment over the objections of the plaintiffs. Gomez , 60 the Supreme Court held that an unaccepted settlement offer or offer of judgment for full individual relief to a proposed class representative of a putative class does not moot the claim. Once ignored or rejected, the offer disappears. The Court's ruling eliminates a defense tactic to putative class actions by trying to cherry-pick the proposed class representatives.
The Court, however, did not decide "whether the result would be different if a defendant deposits the full amount of the plaintiff's individual claim in an account payable to the plaintiff, and the court then enters judgment for the plaintiff in that amount. Geraghty is not a foolproof defense to mootness.
The Court left district courts with considerable discretion in matters of class certification. Should a trial court dismiss before ruling on certification, Geraghty allows appeal on the question of class certification, not the merits. Doing so requires the advocate to be vigilant in continuing to identify such plaintiffs following the commencement of litigation.
In any event, it is wise to move for class certification simultaneously with filing the complaint, or as shortly thereafter as is possible, particularly in cases of inherently short duration.
Exceptions to Mootness The Court has considered three principal exceptions to the mootness doctrine. Voluntary Cessation of Unlawful Conduct A defendant may not moot a claim for injunctive relief simply by ceasing the unlawful conduct. Mootness and Class Actions Class actions raise the question of whether the claims of the class become moot when the individual claims of the class representatives are moot. See Friends of the Earth v. Laidlaw Environmental Services, Incorporated , U.
Arizonans for Official English v. Arizona , U. Buckhannon Board and Care Home, Incorporated v. Chafin , S. The Court noted that the prospects of success of the suit were irrelevant to the mootness question, and uncertainty about the effectiveness and enforceability of any future order did not moot the case. United States , U. Stotts , U. Cochran , U. A case can, of course, become moot when the plaintiff has abandoned their claims, but such abandonment must be unequivocal.
Pacific Bell Telephone Company v. Linkline Communications , U. Board of Pardons v. Allen , U. Prisoners who were denied parole without a statement of reasons challenged the denial.
They claimed that the state statute mandating release under certain circumstances created a liberty interest in eligibility for parole protected by the Fourteenth Amendment. Plaintiffs sought damages as well as declaratory and injunctive relief. Although plaintiffs were later released, mooting their individual claims for injunctive relief, their damage claims remained alive.
Because the immunity of defendants was not settled, the Supreme Court reached the merits, holding that plaintiffs had a cognizable liberty interest in the processing of their parole applications.
The Court remanded the case for further proceedings. See also City of Richmond v. Croson Company , U. An inability to pay a damages judgment at present does not moot a claim.
See United States v. Behrman , F. However, if the judgment seemingly could never be paid, a claim might be dismissed on prudential grounds. Kooyomjian , F. Smith , U. Carey v Piphus , U. Plano Independent School District , F. County of Los Angeles , F. Smith , F. Coughlin , F. Washburn University , F.
Salt Lake City Corporation , F. Lucey , F. The use of damage claims to avoid mootness has limits. States and their agencies are immune under the Eleventh Amendment ; those who act in a judicial capacity enjoy absolute immunity, and other officials enjoy qualified immunity. The assertion of a damage claim against a defendant who clearly enjoys immunity does not save a claim for injunctive relief from mootness.
Blumentha l , F. Before embarking on a damage claim of questionable validity, the attorney should consider Federal Rule of Civil Procedure Continental Bank Corporation , U. Department of Agriculture , F. Norton , F. A request for a declaratory judgment does not alone save a case from mootness when claims for injunctive relief are moot.
Mansour , U. McCorkle , U. Generally, the mootness inquiry is not diminished in declaratory judgment actions. Bean Incorporated , F. Litigation challenging discontinued practices or policies that continue to produce collateral harm is not moot.
