How to initiate a class action lawsuit?
I purchased a service online. It turned out that it was more of a scam than a legitimate service. Initially, I thought it was just me. But talking to several other people, it tuned out that it is likely a scam.
How can people who feel that they were wronged by a company initiate a group lawsuit.
It would not make sense financially, for one person to take legal action against a rich company, but if there are more people who went through the same experience it might be worth it and stop a bad company from taking advantage of others.
Class actions can be started by just one person or a small group of people, and are filed on behalf of all those who suffered similar injury or financial harm. In general, if at least several dozen people were injured in a comparable way, it may be appropriate to file a class action. After a lawsuit has been filed, a judge will evaluate whether enough people have been injured in the same way, among other factors, in determining whether the case can move forward as a class action.
