A class action allows a group of individuals who have been harmed by the wrongful conduct of a corporation or organization to file a lawsuit as a group. The plaintiffs named in the lawsuit pursue their case as a defined class against one or more defendants.

Class actions are typically brought against companies for environmental issues, employment issues, defective products and dangerous drugs.
