Class Actions

A class action is a type of lawsuit. It is a representative action where one or more individuals file a lawsuit on behalf of themselves and a defined class of individuals against one or more defendants. The claims of the class representatives must arise from facts or law common to the other class members. Class actions are used where there are numerous people involved with claims that are similar in nature, and which involve common questions of fact or law. Often, class actions are used where the amount of damages for any one person would not alone justify the expenses of litigation. Class actions are also used where it is more efficient to handle the lawsuit or claim in a consolidated manner."
