We Understand the Class Action

A class action is a form of representative litigation where at least one of the parties, plaintiff or defendant, is a group of people who are collectively represented by a member of that group. That member, known as the “named” plaintiff or defendant, is present in court and litigates the case on behalf of themselves and the absent members of its class.

Rule 23 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure is the principal source of law relating to class actions in the US federal courts. Most states allow parties to bring class actions in state courts, and most of those states have enacted standards analogous to Rule 23 that govern class action proceedings in their respective state courts.

Cases in federal courts are only allowed to proceed as class actions if the court has jurisdiction to hear the case, and if the case meets the criteria set out in Rule 23.
