A consumer class action is a lawsuit brought by a few people on behalf

- Recently, we settled a false advertising class action against Red Bull

In addition to recovering monetary relief, class action lawsuits often
result in changes to the way defendants conduct business in the future.

your individual consumer rights in a class action lawsuit, you could have
a part in protecting others from suffering similar injury or loss.
