What Is A Class Action?

The article in the Daily Mail (but not the one in The New York Post) about the lawsuit against Sharon's Estate and others neglected to point out this is a class action. A class action is a type of lawsuit which can be brought by one or more people who represent a class of other people who were also hurt by the same acts of the same defendants. They are commonly used in securities fraud cases or mass torts. So to be perfectly clear: if anyone else was a member of school and wants to be part of the class, they can potentially collect damages by joining the class by contacting the attorney for the plaintiffs. You would not need to be named in the lawsuit to be part of the class.
