Class Action Filing News

On a very general level, class action lawsuits involve a group of people in some capacity: A collective class, even bound together over the issue of a misrepresented product, suing a defendant, or a group of defendants, multiple negligent companies, for instance, being sued by an individual. While more class action suits are filed for product liability claims, other case types end up in court, too, including groups of shareholders suing for fraud, workers, and residents over environmental disasters.

Each case, which can be filed in either state or federal court, class action lawsuits has its benefits. Because less witnesses overlap, the trial process inevitably moves along more efficiently, while the cost of litigation tends to be lower than for individual plaintiffs filing alone.

Additionally, these types of cases also tend to have drawbacks. Before the lawsuit even moves forward, the collective group must be named as 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.
