According to Wikipedia, a class action is a form of lawsuit where a large group of people who suffer from similar circumstances bring a collective claim against a defendant or a group of defendants they deem responsible. The scope of class action lawsuits can be national, but they must share a common cause. There are certain characteristics the class must share, which include commonality, adequacy, numerosity, and typicality.
Class actions have benefits as well as drawbacks. One major advantage is that class actions increase the efficiency of the legal process because they aggregate numerous claims into one representative suit. Class actions can also lower the costs of litigation for the plaintiffs. Furthermore, class actions can force irresponsible corporations to change their careless behaviors by holding them accountable.
Cobell v. Salazar
This historic class action lawsuit was filed by Native Americans against the United States government. The plaintiffs claimed the United States did not accurately account for the income associated with Native American trust assets. The trusts were formed as a way to transition the Native Americans into ownership of farm land. It was the Department of the Interior’s responsibility to manage these trusts, but they allegedly did a poor job. This resulted in numerous beneficiaries receiving small interests. The Native Americans sued, and after well over a decade of court proceedings, a settlement was reached for $3.4 billion.
Pigford v. Glickman
This landmark class action involved African American farmers suing the United States Department of Agriculture for racial discrimination pertaining to farm loans and assistance between 1983 and 1997. The plaintiffs claimed the USDA treated them unfairly when it came to processing loans. Furthermore, they failed to act on complaints about racial discrimination. The case was settled in 1999 for approximately $1 billion.
