The Process of Filing a Class Action Lawsuit
While there are several possible paths that a class action lawsuit can take, it generally looks like this:
Filing the complaint and response to the complaint. This is where your attorney will file the complaint on behalf of the class. The defendant can then respond to the complaint.
Discovery. During discovery, your attorneys will find the evidence necessary to support your case. This can include everything from collecting documents and data to reports from experts and depositions from those in the class.
Certification. The certification process takes place after discovery. It requires the attorney representing the class to submit a request to the court that asks them to approve the action. If an action is certified by the court, it means that the suit meets all legal requirements and can proceed.
Notification. After certification, all possible plaintiffs (anyone who has a similar claim) are told about the class action suit. They can then choose to join the class action, pursue a case on their own, or not get involved.
Trial. If there isn’t a settlement between the parties after the notification stage, the suit will move to trial.
Appeal. After the court rules, the party who lost has the opportunity to appeal the court’s decision to a higher court.
Final order. A final order is the settlement amount determined by the court. The final order may also include orders from the court ordering the defendant to make changes to policies or behaviors that contributed to the lawsuit.
This process can take time. For that reason, as well as the complex nature of a class action lawsuit, it is important to hire a legal team that understands how to maximize the chances of success.
