Boise Attorneys for Class Actions & Multidistrict Litigation
Is Your Company Involved in a Lawsuit Affecting Many Plaintiffs?
Whether your company is defending against legal action or among several or many plaintiffs in a lawsuit, Mooney Wieland can help you protect your interests in court.
Typically, lawsuits that involve more than one plaintiff manifest as either a class action lawsuit or multi-district litigation. Plaintiffs in these cases often sue one or more defendants who are allegedly responsible for similar injuries or rights violations experienced by the plaintiffs.
Whether your company’s actions are the subject of a single large lawsuit or many smaller ones, or you are involved as a plaintiff in any of these, we can help. Mooney Wieland’s attorneys for class actions and multidistrict litigation in Boise, Idaho and American Samoa have the experience and skill it takes to sue for our clients’ interests in large legal contests like these.
Class Action Lawsuits
A class action lawsuit is often a single complaint filed by a large group of plaintiffs who allege that they share similar harm caused by one or more defendants.
Each plaintiff could file individually, but consolidating their complaints into a single legal action has its benefits. For one, it can broaden the chance of success by demonstrating through overwhelming evidence that the plaintiffs’ claims are not the result of a one-off accident or mistake. It can also increase the financial compensation a defendant is ordered to pay.
Most claims will end up in the state court system, but may be heard in federal courts should the complaints at hand deal with an alleged violation or question of federal law. Whether you need legal representation in state or federal court, the class action and multidistrict litigation attorneys in Boise, Idaho and American Samoa at Mooney Wieland are here to provide legal support.
While class action lawsuits begin as many different plaintiffs coming together to file a common complaint, the process is a little different in multidistrict litigation. In this scenario, there are many different lawsuits about a similar issue that have already been filed by different plaintiffs.
The goal of multidistrict litigation is to identify these lawsuits and bring them together to conduct common pre-trial proceedings such as discovery. While the consolidated complaints can proceed to trial as a common complaint, they may also be sent back to their original courts to be heard by juries in their local jurisdictions.
