Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is a Class Action lawsuit?

A class action lawsuit involves separate individuals combining their similar complaints. It usually has a “Lead Plaintiff” who represents numerous different people who have been similarly affected by a company’s unlawful conduct. This type of lawsuit allows shareholders or consumers to pool together resources and compete on the same playing field as large corporations. Class action lawsuits can take up to two to three years to litigate, but may also settle much sooner.

What is a Lead Plaintiff?

In federal court, a “Lead Plaintiff” is appointed to represent the other investors who purchased the securities during the “class period,” which is the time frame during which the fraud occurred. A Lead Plaintiff is usually a class member with the largest financial interest in the recovery sought by the class. This could be an individual plaintiff, a group of individuals or, other entity (such as an investment fund). On occasion, the court may also appoint “Co-Lead Plaintiffs.”

If you are interested in serving as a Lead Plaintiff, please let us know.

Can I participate in the recovery?

If you purchased your securities during the class period, and your purchase resulted in a loss, you may be eligible to recover money damages. You may subsequently sell your stock at any time and still participate in the recovery, so long as your overall investment resulted in a loss.

What are the costs and expenses for me?

None. Prosecuting law firms usually advance all costs of class action lawsuits. Since we operate on a contingent fee basis, we ask the court to grant us reimbursement of our expenses and attorneys’ fees (usually a percentage of the total recovery) only in the event that we are successful.
