Class action lawsuits
A class action is a type of lawsuit in which one or several persons sue on behalf of a larger group of persons, referred to as “the class.” “The class action is one of the few legal remedies the small claimant has against those who command the status quo.” (Former U.S Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas)
For example, in a gun case, a manufacturer may have improperly/negligently designed a gun that will fire when it is not expected to fire. The gun may cost $1000.00. Individual claims for $1000.00 would not be cost effective and too numerous to bring individually. Therefore, this type of claim is best brought in a class action, because:
This type of lawsuit prevents fraud and other deceptive practices of large corporations.
