Dutch legislation looks to make collective claims possible

Thursday 17 May 2018 | 13:33 CET | News
The Dutch Ministry of Justice and Security wants better insight into the costs of collective damages lawsuits. A bill is going through the Lower House of Parliament that would make it possible for a group of victims to file a claim against a company or organisation at the same time. This is not possible at the moment, as current legislation does not offer an official way to file a mass claim. It is possible to collect a group of complainants and to do the substantive preparation together. Every victim must still go to court to file a claim.
