If I file a class action, what will I have to do?

  • A person who files a class action is going to seek to become the representation of a class in that action.
  • That person is going to have to take a very active role in the litigation.
  • They are expected to monitor the litigation and confer with us from time to time with respect to the litigation.
  • They will have to attend meetings, conferences, and sometimes even appear at depositions and the trial.
  • They are the ones who brought the suit and they are the ones on behalf of the class who are going to pursue it.
