Federal and state law allow for the consolidated prosecution of claims held by large numbers of consumers or businesses who have been injured by a common course of misconduct. Such actions, known as class actions, permit the aggregation and litigation of common claims in a single proceeding. Class actions are designed to assure that violations of law which have resulted in widespread injury do not go unremedied in the court simply because the cost of asserting any one individual claim is prohibitive.
