A class action lawsuit involves a plaintiff suing one or more defendants on behalf of a group of other people (called a “class”). This procedural device is different than a traditional lawsuit, where one party sues another party for redress of a wrong, and all of the parties are present in court. Class actions are most common where the allegations involve a large number of people who have been injured by the same defendant(s) in the same way. Instead of each damaged person bringing his or her own lawsuit, the class action allows all the claims of all class members—whether they know they have been damaged or not—to be resolved in a single proceeding through the efforts of the representative plaintiff(s) and court-appointed class counsel.
