Multi-district litigation (MDL) is similar to class action lawsuits that allow for the processing of cases that involve multiple plaintiffs in dozens of different courts that all share common issues. For instance, products such as prescription drugs or defective building materials can harm people across jurisdictional lines. MDL cases like this are often consolidated into one venue to be handled by a federal judge who can run the process efficiently. Streamlining this process is helpful to individual plaintiffs particularly in complex and expensive cases as they benefit from the collective resources and efforts of the MDL. However, victims in these cases still need skilled legal representation to ensure their interests in the case are managed correctly and completely.
