Attorney Profile

David Cialkowski is a partner with Zimmerman Reed, and dedicates a substantial portion of his practice to the area of complex and mass tort litigation, with a primary focus on consumer protection and products liability litigation.

David was a member of the legal team that represented the Mississippi Attorney General’s Office in Mississippi ex rel. Hood v. AU Optronics, 134 S. Ct. 736 (2014), an antitrust case against manufacturers of LCD displays where the Court considered whether an attorney general’s enforcement action can remain in state court under the Class Action Fairness Act. The Supreme Court ruled unanimously in Mississippi’s favor. He served as a member of the Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee in In re Apple iPhone 3G and 3GS “MMS” Marketing and Sales Practices Litigation, a consumer protection class action, MDL 2116, based in New Orleans, Louisiana. He worked extensively on the Levaquin MDL trial team on behalf of clients who experienced tendon ruptures and tears after taking the popular Johnson & Johnson antibiotic.

He also served as court-appointed co-lead counsel in In re Dockers Roundtrip Airfare Promotion Sales Practices Litigation, a consumer protection class action based in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California. David has worked extensively on behalf of plaintiffs in In re St. Jude Silzone Heart Valves Product Liability Litigation, MDL 1396. He has also contributed substantially to pretrial summary judgment and class certification briefing in the Fedex Ground Package Systems employment status litigation, MDL 1700.

David represented residents of Minot, North Dakota, in In re Soo Line Railroad Company Derailment of January 18, 2002 in Minot, N.D., who were injured by the toxic spill caused by the derailment of a Canadian Pacific Railway train, and helped draft federal legislation clarifying the scope, and thus reducing courts’ application, of railroad preemption.

David is licensed to practice and a member in good standing, for the Bars of the State of Minnesota and the State of Illinois.
