Although motions to decertify may be proper under certain circumstances,
the Court may not disturb its prior certification findings absent some significant intervening event, or a showing of compelling reasons to reexamine the question. Jermyn v. Best Buy Stores, L.P., 276 F.R.D. 167, 169 (S.D.N.Y.2011)). Moreover, “[a] court should be wary of revoking a certification order completely at a late stage in the litigation process.” Id. (quoting Easterling v. Conn. Dep’t of Corr., 278 F.R.D. 41, 42 (D.Conn.2011)).
Gortat v. Capala Bros., 949 F. Supp. 2d 374, 383 (E.D.N.Y. 2013).
