A class action lawsuit is a lawsuit in which a large number of people with similar legal issues are represented by a small number of individuals. These individuals are known as class representatives. Class action lawsuits serve the purpose of resolving widely spread legal disputes that may cause small amounts of damages to each class member. Because many people are not willing to vindicate their rights for smaller amount of damage, class members benefit from the case without being specifically named in the lawsuit and participating in the litigation.
Because class action lawsuits involve many complexities and nuances it is critical that a class representative be represented by an attorney who understands class action litigation.
