A class action is a lawsuit in which a large number of people with similar legal claims join together in a group to sue someone, usually a company or organization. Federal and state courts have specific procedures that govern these cases. In order to proceed as a class action, a judge must certify the class and allow the lawsuit to proceed as a class action and determine whether the plaintiff and the attorneys are qualified to represent the class.
Common class actions involve cases in which a product has injured many people, where a company has wrongfully overcharged for a product or service, or in which a group of people has suffered discrimination at the hands of an organization.
