Common claims

Common claims – in most jurisdictions the term refers to these are claims entered by many claimants against one defendant. In civil trials it is possible where the defendant is one and the same, the reason for entering the claim is one and the same, the proofs are one and the same and the pretention (i.e. the claim) is equal in its origin, a common claim to be entered in court, for speeding the court process. The decision is binding all parties who participated in the procedure only.
