Apple now facing at least 60 lawsuits in wake of iPhone throttling scandal

Daily Mail - Science & tech

In the US, a class action lawsuit is a court case in which a large number of people join together to sue another person or company, or in which a large group of people or companies are being sued. It often saves the time, money and energy of everyone involved to bring cases together into one class action lawsuit, rather than filing individual cases. In general, you don't need to do anything to join a class action. If your legal rights are affected by a class action, you usually will only need to get involved once the case settles. In most cases, you will need to submit a claim, either online or through the mail, to receive your portion of the settlement or judgement.
