Before LAGOA, SALTER, and LOGUE, JJ.
District Court of Appeal of Florida, Third District.
We have for review a trial order certifying a class action against Porsche Cars North America, Inc. ("Distributor"). In analyzing whether common issues will predominate over individual issues, the trial court used an outdated definition of unfair trade practices. When the updated definition is used, common issues will not predominate. We accordingly reverse and remand.
