What Is a Class Action?
A class action lawsuit refers to a lawsuit in which not an individual, but a group of individuals harmed by the same action sue the defendant or defendants.
When the court permits a class action the group of individuals will sue the defendant through a representative often labeled as the “lead plaintiff”. The plaintiff representing law firms will make serious attempts to notify every person who will be affected by the court’s decision.
When a class action is won by the defendant the plaintiff group is dismissed and the individuals from that group are not allowed to pursue justice in this case individually again. If the class wins the award is divided between the members of the class action group.
