Class Action Filing News

As a general overview, class action lawsuits involve a large group of people in some capacity: A collective class, formed together over the issue of a broken 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 for product liability claims, other types of cases end up in court, too, including groups of shareholders suing for fraud, employees for discrimination, and residents over environmental disasters.

Each case, which may be filed in either federal or state court, class action has its benefits. Because less 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 class action even progresses, the prosecuting group must be defined as a class. Federal courts, as well, may stop class action lawsuits if the defendants are state governments or officials or if the plaintiffs number less than {one hundred,100.
