Seattle Class Action Lawsuits
Barnard Iglitzin & Lavitt has litigated class action cases at every stage, from negotiation and settlement, to class certification, summary judgment, trial and appeal.
What is a Class Action Lawsuit?
As the name suggests, class actions provide plaintiffs with a way to file and prosecute lawsuits on behalf of a larger group. A class action lawsuit is managed by the device, instead of having to name each member of the class as a plaintiff, which would make the lawsuit impractical.
How to Start a Class Action Lawsuit
In 2009 alone, we enabled a union to intervene in and successfully oppose class certification in a wage and hour lawsuit that threatened the way dispatch works in the longshore industry; we settled a case against a large grocery chain for failure to pay workers for time spent putting on and taking off necessary protective clothing; and we successfully resolved other class action cases relating to off-the-clock work.
We also successfully represented a class of homeowners in an action against King County involving excessive utility fees the County had imposed.
