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