Who Gets Involved In A Litigation Case?
Updated: Apr 9, 2019
As you may already know, a general litigation case is typically when a dispute between two or more individuals is handled in court, with legal representation of attorneys (litigators). Litigation can also arise between a individual and a business, group, or corporation. But what you may not know is what all parties get involved in a general litigation case, specifically a class action law suit. This article will answer all of your questions and more, so keep reading!
In most, if not all, individual to individual litigation cases, there are 5 key people. The plaintiff and his or her attorney, defendant and his or her attorney, and a judge. These cases get settled either behind closed doors or in court. Litigation cases, as previously stated above, can also be between an individual and a business. In this case a individual may have a single attorney, whereas a business may have a team of attorneys.
In a class action law suit, multiple individuals are suing a corporation or group for some sort of injuries. Each individual is represented by his or her own attorney, and in some cases that attorney may represent multiple of the individuals who are taking action against the group.
