Class-action lawsuit - Definitions


In law, a class action is an equitable procedural device used in litigation for determining the rights of and remedies, if any, for large numbers of people whose cases involve common questions of law and fact.



A class action lawsuit allows multipe plaintiffs to sue the same defendants, while choosing a single plaintiff to represent the entire group of plaintiffs ("the class"). Class actions are very complicated, and possiblle plaintiffs should seek legal counsel.



How about we the people join in on one major class-action lawsuit that'll bankrupt the federal government?

Sue them for causing/creating conditions of civil unrest. Sue them for causing/creating a hurtful economy. We need to sue them based on population. If it is a resident population of 313,326,000 here in the U.S., then we need our class-action to sue for $313,326,000. This will give each residential citizen a cool million. We will all be rich enough then on.

What say you people? We can effectively alter the government by winning a jumbo class-action lawsuit, yes? Or we can effectively turn the economy around by each becoming millionaires.


Pros and Cons


The modern class action allows a single plaintiff (the "class representative") to sue on behalf of any other plaintiffs who may have suffered the same injury at the hands of the same defendant. Should any amount be awarded to the plaintiffs, they divide it equally. Class actions give many would-be plaintiffs the opportunity to sue, by offering incentive for an attorney to take the case. They also reduce the burden on courts in multiple tort cases. However, opponents of class action lawsuits criticize them for actually increasing the burden on the courts by creating more incentive to bring spurious lawsuits. The class action also increases the incentive for a defendant to settle out of court, even in a case without merit, because of the often prohibitive legal costs of proceeding to trial.

if everyone has a million dollars then prices will rise $50 a gallon for gas, $25 for a candy bar etc so soon the million bucks will be gone and where do you expect the government to find that sort of money? its print it into existence but it'll devalue the currency till you need to take a wheel barrow full of $20's just to buy a loaf of bread

So we will basically pay ourselves and of course the lawyers. Tax, tax, and more taxes.

Every obese person should sue them for the harm done to them via the poisoned food that the stores are filled with.

Ever notice how ALL are world leaders have their own organic supplies???? Take a look at the uk. Prince Charles is presented to us as the nutty old prince and we shouldnt take to much notice of him. HOWEVER!! He has a very large organic estate that feeds the royals and their powerfull buddys. Strange how he's presented to us mere mortals as nutty yet is the supplier of HEALTHY food for the elite.

Better yet, help the system collapse so that we the people can then begin rebuilding a system that actually works, for us. I say everyone quit their jobs and go on welfare, that is what tptb want isn't it? Well give it to them, then when they get it, we turn the tables and do what we want. We can survive that, tptb cannot survive it. After all, all of us in some shape or form work for the very people destroying the planet. I am ok with sitting at the back of the bus, until the right time.
