A class action lawsuit is a legal action brought by a large group of people who have been similarly harmed by the same defendant. In a class action lawsuit, one or more plaintiffs, known as "representative plaintiffs," sue on behalf of a larger group of individuals who have similar claims. The plaintiffs in a class action lawsuit must demonstrate that there are sufficient common issues of law or fact among their claims to justify proceeding as a class.
The following is a general outline of the class action lawsuit process:

1.Filing of
the Complaint

A class action lawsuit begins with the filing of a complaint in a court of law. The complaint outlines the plaintiffs' allegations against the defendant and sets forth the basis for the class action.

2.Certification of
the Class

After the complaint is filed, the court must determine whether the case meets the requirements for certification as a class action. The court will consider factors such as the size of the class, the commonality of the claims, and the adequacy of representation by the representative plaintiffs.

3.Notice to
Class Members

If the court certifies the class, notice is typically given to all potential class members, advising them of the lawsuit and their right to opt out of the class.


The parties to the lawsuit engage in a process of discovery, in which they gather and exchange information about the claims and defenses.

5.Settlement or

If the parties reach a settlement, the terms of the settlement must be approved by the court. If the parties are unable to reach a settlement, the case will proceed to trial.


If the case goes to trial, the court will make a decision on the merits of the case. If the plaintiffs win, the court will enter a judgment in their favor, awarding damages and/or other relief.


Either party may appeal the court's decision if they are dissatisfied with the outcome.
