CLASS ACTION/CONSUMER ACTION LITIGATION
From time to time, a consumer of a product or service may encounter unfair or unlawful conduct by the company offering that product or service. Sometimes, the harm caused to the sole consumer by such unfair or unlawful conduct may be so small in economic terms that it may not be worth the time or effort for the consumer or her attorney to address the unfair or unlawful conduct. However, when the harm to a group of people who are similarly situated – a “class” — is considered at the same time, it makes more sense for consumers and their lawyers to address the unfair or unlawful conduct on a “class” basis on behalf of dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of claimants.
