Class Actions -- Plaintiff Law
What legal remedies are available for successful class actions?
Most class actions are filed for compensatory (money) damages. Class actions may also be filed to resolve disputes over a “limited fund,” where the money available is inadequate to fully compensate all class members. Occasionally, class actions are filed to seek a declaratory judgment. Finally, a class action may seek injunctive relief. For example, a class action may be filed to request the court order the police or authorities to discontinue an unconstitutional practice.
