Class Action Lawsuit

A lawsuit that allows a large number of people with a common interest in a matter to sue or be sued as a group. Class actions provide a convenient and efficient vehicle for resolving legal disputes affecting a number of parties with similar claims that could have similar outcomes because they do not have to be tried piecemeal in separate actions, saving the courts and the litigants time and money.
