class action

A type of lawsuit that is brought by a single, affected individual on behalf of a large group of similarly affected individuals. Class actions were created by the judicial system because frequently, the number of plaintiffs involved in a lawsuit is so numerous that it would be onerous to name and adjudicate the claims of all plaintiffs on an individual basis. See also Putative class action.
