This week, Brian T. Fitzpatrick, Professor of Law at Vanderbilt Law School, joins Abby in the classroom to help with her lesson plan on class action lawsuits.

Professor Fitzpatrick explains how class action suits come together, how they unfold, and how they impact defendants. He also discusses how settlements are distributed and what the pros and cons of these suits might be.
