Class actions are lawsuits brought by a small group of representative plaintiffs on behalf of a larger class of similarly situated parties.
In the right cases, class actions can be a powerful tool to address widespread legal harm that cannot be efficiently addressed in individual lawsuits. In the wrong cases, they can be the cause of harm, when claims of questionable validity are brought to intimidate defendants into a quick settlement.
