Class actions are lawsuits brought on behalf of multiple individuals who have suffered similar harms due to a defendant's policy or practice.  Class actions can vary in size from hundreds of class members upwards of several million individuals.  

When appropriate, class actions serve several significant social benefit.  Oftentimes they are the only method to deter a company's wrongful behavior, particularly if each individual member's damages might be small.  For example, where a bank overcharges customers $5 each, there is little incentive for individuals to bring lawsuits against the bank for such a small recovery, and there is little incentive for lawyers to pursue an individual lawsuit for a $5 case.  In the absence of a class action, the bank would get away with its illegal conduct and potentially make millions of dollars off its customers.  The class action allows consumer to aggregate their claims so that each class member can recover for their claims, and the bank will have a powerful disincentive to stop its illegal practice.
