Jeanette Bayoumi

Jeanette Bayoumi is an associate at Hausfeld’s New York office. As part of the dynamic litigation team at Hausfeld, Jeanette’s work spans a wide array of practice areas, including Hausfeld’s Antitrust, Financial Services and Securities, Environmental, and Human Rights practice areas.

Jeanette is currently working on a variety of cases including In re American Express Anti-Steering Rules Antitrust Litigation, a multidistrict litigation class action lawsuit consolidated in the Eastern District of New York. In that case, Hausfeld represents a class of merchant plaintiffs alleging that American Express’ Anti-Steering Rules, which prohibit merchants from steering consumers towards using other credit and charge cards to pay for purchases, unreasonably restrain interbrand price competition among credit and charge card networks thereby affecting the two-sided market. Jeanette is also involved in cases such as In re Chicago Board Options Exchange Volatility Index Manipulation Antitrust Litigation, MDL No. 2842 (N.D. Ill.), a multidistrict litigation class action lawsuit consolidated in the Northern District of Illinois alleging manipulation of the CBOE Volatility Index (“VIX”), known as the U.S. stock market’s “fear gauge,” and In re Mexican Government Bonds Antitrust Litigation, a multidistrict litigation class action lawsuit alleging manipulation of the Mexican Government Bonds market.

In addition, Jeanette is a member of the Suffolk County Water Authority v. The Dow Chemical Company et al., 17-6980 (E.D.N.Y.) and Suffolk County Water Authority v. The 3M Company et al., 17-6982 (E.D.N.Y.) case teams. Filed against the manufacturers of toxic chemicals that have polluted the Authority’s public supply wells, these water contamination cases allege that the defendants, who knew or should have known of the environmental risks of their defectively-designed products, must bear responsibility for the costs of treating the contaminated water and protecting the public from harm.

Jeanette is also an active participant in the firm’s pro-bono work. Notably, she is part of the Hausfeld team which, in early 2018, filed four separate lawsuits in federal courts located in California, Massachusetts, South Carolina, and Texas, each alleging that the winner-take-all system of the electoral college violates the U.S. Constitution and distorts presidential campaigns. The multiple plaintiffs in these four cases, including the largest Latino membership organization in the U.S., LULAC, seek to establish a more democratic system of voting for the President. See Rodriguez, et al. v. Brown, et al., No. 18-cv-01422 (C.D. Cal.); Lyman, et al. v. Baker, et al., No. 18-cv-10327 (D. Ma.); Baten, et al. v. McMaster, No. 18-cv-00510 (D.S.C.); and League of United Latin American Citizens, et al. v. Abbott, et al., No. 18-cv-00175 (D. Tex.).
