Victims of voyeur join together in class action lawsuit

Most in Charleston might assume civil lawsuits to be limited to disputes between two parties. There are, however, many times when multiple people, organizations or entities might be involved in a single action. When a single plaintiff initiates action against multiple defendants, those defendants are typically grouped together in a single lawsuit. However, in cases where a large number of people have a common claim against a single entity, the court may consider a class action. This may save time, many and resources from being expended on multiple cases that all have the same objective, and it ensures that all of those involved are equally represented. 

Many might assume that only companies and corporations are the targets of class action lawsuits. Yet individuals can be, as well. One need only look at an ongoing case in Alabama for an example of this. A local man is currently serving a 140-year prison sentenced for charges stemming from having placed video cameras in the changing areas and restrooms of local businesses. Now, at least 100 victims of his voyeurism have joined together in a class action lawsuit against him. Also named as a defendant in the lawsuit is the janitorial services company the man worked for and through whom he had been granted access to the facilities where he committed his crimes. 

Cases such as this highlight the need for class actions, as some victims may want to seek legal action yet do not want to be involved in legal proceedings. Classes elect representatives for such proceedings who stand for the interest of all those involved. Given the many complexities that can be involved in class actions, those who want to pursue them may want to first consult with an experienced attorney.
