Hillenbrand (HI) says a Court of Appeals has denied class certification in a lawsuit filed against it by the Funeral Consumers Alliance and a number of individual consumer casket purchasers. The consumer advocacy group had sought class certification in a suit alleging that HI subsidiary Batesville Casket Company had violated antitrust laws by limiting the sale of its Caskets to licensed funeral homes.
