Class Action Automotive Antitrust Jtekt

On a very general level, class action lawsuits involve a band of people in some capacity: A collective class, held together over the issue of a faulty product, suing a defendant, or a band of defendants, multiple negligent companies, as an example, being sued by a single person. While most class action suits are filed on behalf of product liability claims, other case types end up in court, too, including groups of shareholders suing for fraud, workers, and residents over environmental disasters.

With a case, which may be filed in either federal or state court, class action has its benefits. Because fewer witnesses overlap, the trial process inevitably moves along faster, while the cost of litigation tends to be lower than for one off plaintiffs filing alone.

On the other hand, these types of cases do tend to have drawbacks. Before the lawsuit even progresses, the collective group must be called a class. Federal courts, as well, may conclude class action lawsuits if the defendants are state governments or officials or if the plaintiffs number less than {one hundred,100.
