Class Action Z Pack

On a very general level, class action lawsuits involve a large group of people in some capacity: A collective class, formed together over the issue of a defective product, suing a defendant, or a band of defendants, multiple negligent companies, for instance, being sued by a single person. While more class action lawsuits are filed for product liability claims, other types of cases end up in court, too, including shareholders suing for fraud, workers, and residents over environmental disasters.

With a 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 more efficiently, while the overall cost of litigation tends to be lower than for separate plaintiffs filing alone.

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