A class action lawsuit is a procedural device permitting one or more individuals to file and prosecute a lawsuit on behalf of a larger group (or "class") of similarly situated individuals. Class actions allow courts to manage lawsuits that would otherwise be unmanageable if each class member (individuals who have suffered the same wrong at the hands of the same defendant) filed a separate lawsuit or were required to join the lawsuit as a named plaintiff.
