A class action is a lawsuit that is filed by a representative plaintiff on behalf a group or class of plaintiffs that have a common legal issue to be determined by the court. Class action legislation provides an opportunity to pursue cases that (because of the legal costs involved) may not otherwise be economically viable for individual plaintiffs.

Ellis Business Lawyers assisted in the settlement of approximately $2.8 million, approved by the Supreme Court of British Columbia on September 11, 2015. The method of distribution, class counsel fees and an honorarium to the representative plaintiff was approved by the court on November 10, 2015, on behalf of taxpayers to recover refunds of FST from the federal minister of revenue.
