A class action lawsuit permits plaintiffs with a common interest to sue on behalf of a large group (the class), when individuals might not otherwise have the means or incentive to file suit. Class actions allow similarly-situated persons or entities to recover damages from defendants when it would not be feasible for class members to sue individually. Class action lawsuits perform a valuable social function in discouraging illegal business practices and unlawful conduct, by bad-actors who might not otherwise expect to be prosecuted. Class action lawsuits also allow courts to handle large numbers of similar plaintiffs, when many individual lawsuits would be unmanageable.
