The COVID-19 pandemic negatively impacted virtually every type of business industry, as well as entertainment venues such as concerts and sporting events. In addition to dealing a crushing blow to the world economy, the pandemic also brought the American judicial system to a grinding halt. Courtrooms across the United States closed for weeks, even months at a time, depending on where an outbreak reached crisis levels. The shutdown of the American judicial system included a substantial delay in litigating top class action lawsuits.
With the prolonged delay in litigating top class action lawsuits, commercials presented by law firms stopped showing on television. Commercials discussing the Roundup settlement or reminding viewers about the deadline to join the talcum powder class action lawsuit gave way to other forms of television advertising. However, just when 2021 turned over to 2022, courtrooms around the country reopened, which restarted the process for litigating top class action lawsuits. Since January 1, 2022, the number of top class action lawsuits has increased significantly from the numbers posted in 2020 and 2021.
Attorneys file class action lawsuits on behalf of a group of individuals and/or businesses that have sustained damages caused by the negligence committed by the defendant. One individual or business takes the lead in a class action lawsuit by acting as the representative of the group filing the lawsuit. Although the legal issues that form class action lawsuits differ widely among cases, the legal issues filed for a group cover the same legal issues for every member of the group.
