A class action is a useful device that permits many individuals to sue a single defendant for a common wrong.
Class actions typically arise where a large Defendant (like a multinational corporation or Fortune 500 company), or group of Defendants, has systematically and uniformly engaged in a single unfair and deceptive business practice. This practice often includes charging excessive or illegal fees (like overdraft banking fees or debt settlement fees) or a similar practice.
Properly filed class actions are incredibly useful social justice tools that level the playing field for hundreds or thousands of consumers against a massive corporation. They permit the Davids of the world to combine forces to fight a common wrong when a single Plaintiff would be unable to do so.
Spokane class action lawyer Mack Mayo has aggressively pursued corporations in court-approved class actions throughout his entire career. Over the years, he has been appointed class counsel by various courts in highly complex consumer class actions, and he has recovered millions of dollars for victims of unfair and deceptive business practices and also obtained injunctive relief barring defendants from engaging in similar practices in the future in our State.
Mack has fought for consumers all the way up to the Washington Supreme Court, where he has obtained a far-reaching unanimous decision protecting consumers right to bring class actions in open court.
