What is a class action?
A class action is a representative proceeding brought by one person on behalf of a group of people to assist in resolving common issues and factual disputes amongst that group.
The main benefit of group proceedings is that they enable a dispute involving potentially large numbers of people to be resolved by way of a single case.
