What you should know
Because class actions are a crucial tool for vindicating the rights of consumers and workers who cannot effectively bring suit on an individual basis, Public Citizen participates in cases to preserve the ability to maintain class actions. And where a proposed settlement is not adequate, we represent objectors seeking to improve the settlement terms.
We recognize the importance of class actions to remedy and deter wrongdoing. See our materials on class action rules and settlements.
