Mass torts litigation attempts to conserve judicial resources

The state and federal courts in California often take on large multi-district litigation matters involving dozens, hundreds or occasionally even thousands of litigants with similar claims. These may be in the form of class actions or they may be cases involving mass torts, such as products liability claims made by multiple victims from separate accidents. One example of such litigation currently centered in another state is the private litigation being waged against General Motors Co. over ignition switches that are alleged to have been defective.
