The purpose of this site is to try and shed some light on the subject of
and provide information on CLASS ACTION LAWSUITS.
CLASS ACTION LAWSUITS
Almost all of us have at one time received notice from the courts that we are a
member of a class action lawsuit and have wondered, "What does it all
mean? What is the best course of action for us to take? What do I
stand to gain or lose if I take one action or the other? Where can I
get information to help me make an informed decision?" Not knowing the
answers to the above and other questions, our normal course of action is to
throw the notice in the trash and forget the matter. This is normally not the
best action to take. In this site I will try to show what other actions
are possible in a class action lawsuit and should be considered.
The purported purpose of class action lawsuits is to give the common man the
ability to take on the largest corporate or private entities (who can afford
the very best legal services) and have a chance of redressing the wrong done by
these entities. It is important to remember that even though the actual
damage or cost to the individual class member may be small, the illicit gain to
the corporate entity can be huge if done to hundreds or even hundreds of
thousands of class members. With this in mind, when you recieve your
notice as a class member, you think "Gee, someone finally caught the
S.O.B.s. I'll get what's due me. Justice will be done. The
big corporation will stop ripping people off." HA! If you believe
any of the above, I've got a bridge I want to sell you!

To begin a tour of this site and to see how class actions are supposed to
work, click on Basic Structure at this
time. This will give an overview of how class action lawsuits are
supposed to work, although, as you will soon find out, they seldom do.
At this point let me state that I am not an attorney, although many of my
friends and associates are and have been of great help in some of the legal
links and information on how the system actually works. The opinions I express
herein are purely mine and are based on my experiences.
