What is a Class Action

A class action is a case where one person, or a few people, represent numerous other people who have all suffered the same injury. A class action can allow individuals to recover money when it would not otherwise be possible to file a lawsuit. For example, if a company illegally takes a small amount of money from many people, it can be very profitable for the company, but it would not make sense for any one of those people to file an individual lawsuit that would be expensive to litigate. A class action can allow a recovery for everyone affected by the illegal practice, and helps to stop frauds that otherwise would go unchallenged.

What Types Of Class Action Cases Are There?

Class actions challenge many kinds of systemic illegal practices, including:

  • Harassing auto-dialed telephone calls
  • Debt collection violations
  • Debt Cancellation or "GAP" Agreements that don't pay off remaining loan balances
  • Illegal charges in vehicle sales transactions
  • Illegal loan charges
  • Defective products
  • Confessed Judgment Notes in consumer transactions
  • Illegal Towing Practices
  • Unfair and deceptive practices
  • Data breaches
  • Unfair competition or anti-trust violations, such as "no-poach" agreements that competitors will not hire each others' employees
