WHAT IS A CLASS ACTION?

A class action is a legal procedure used to efficiently handle a lawsuit in which a large number of people have been injured by a common act or set of actions. Class actions provide a mass remedy for people whose claims are relatively small and who, therefore, might not be able to afford access to the courts if they had to file their own lawsuit. The person who brings the lawsuit on behalf of other "class" members is referred to as the "class representative" or "lead plaintiff," and serves to represent everyone in the class and prosecute the case on their behalf. All class members have equal say and rights to any monies or remedies ordered by the court.
