Class action lawsuits and collective action lawsuits allow individuals to band together to take on powerful interests. Sometimes called “mass torts,” these suits serve as an important check against misconduct that might otherwise go without scrutiny—particularly where individual claims are modest. As one judge famously observed, “only a lunatic or a fanatic sues for $30.” But by harnessing the power of class action rules, a lead plaintiff can not only vindicate their own rights but those of hundreds or thousands of similarly situated people.
