When there are systematic violations of laws, a class action may be the best vehicle to obtain justice, not only for the individual that has been a victim of the illegal practices, but for other individuals that are similarly situated. To be certified as a class action, California law requires two elements; ascertainability and community of interest.
California law defines ascertainble by examining the (1) class definition, (2) the size of the class, and (3) the means available for identifying the class members.
The community of interest requirement embodies three factors: (1) predominant common questions of law or fact; (2) class representatives with claims or defenses typical of the class; and (3) class representatives who can adequately represent the class.
