Class Action Filing News

As a general rule, class action lawsuits involve a group of people in some capacity: A collective class, formed together over the issue of a faulty product, suing a defendant, or a group of defendants, multiple negligent companies, as an example, being sued by a single person. While most class action lawsuits are filed on behalf of 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.

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

Additionally, these types of cases do tend to have drawbacks. Before the class action even progresses, the collective group must be called a class. Federal courts, as well, can stop class actions if the defendants are state governments or officials or if the plaintiffs number less than {one hundred,100.
