What Is A Consumer Class Action?

A consumer class action is a lawsuit in which one or more individuals, often called the “named plaintiffs,” sue on behalf of themselves and others who are “similarly situated.” For example, if a purchaser of certain product sues the manufacturer, alleging that the product is deceptively labeled, s/he may also seek to represent other purchasers of the same product.
