What Is A Class Action?

A class action is a unique kind of lawsuit where a group of people who have the same problem get together and sue at the same time. The group of people is called the “class”, and the size of the class can vary – a class must include at least two people, but there is no limit to how many people can be in a class.

A class action is a representative action. This means that the class is represented by an individual (or sometimes, several individuals) who is called the “representative plaintiff”.
