English term or phrase:class action
Hello, it is taken from an article telling about decisions released by California Appellate court .The sentence in which that term exists is:
california appelate court releases important decision on forum selection and class action restriction clauses.
Class Action : A lawsuit in which the plaintiff or plaintiffs bring suit both on their own behalf and on behalf of many others who have the same calim against the defendant.
Dear Ashwaqz, are you not satisfied with the answers?
in fact it is a case taken to the court by a number of consumers against Earthlink Inc. those consumers signed a contract with it and payed fees for necessary equipment.they could not get their money back and wanted to make a case for being cheated. what I understood is that they,at the beginning, could not make it since the agreement made with the copmpany precluded class actions. this is why the court released a decision making this contractual provision barring class actions unenforceable.
