Class Action Hhc

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 misrepresented product, suing a defendant, or a group of defendants, multiple negligent companies, as an example, being sued by a single person. While more 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 corporate fraud, employees for discrimination, and residents over environmental disasters.

With a case, which may be filed in either state or federal court, class action 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 one off plaintiffs filing alone.

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