Class Action Notice and Plain Language
Notice is only effective if it’s understood. That’s why F.R.C.P. Rule 23 requires that “plain, easily understood language” be used in notice to class members. Parties that don’t comply may face objections and, in the worst-case scenario, be required to pay for new notices.
Plain language is more than just simplified language. It requires a deep understanding of an audience combined with expertise in organization, design, and writing. Kinsella Media’s experience in hundreds of class action lawsuits and settlements is unparalleled. Dr. Shannon Wheatman wrote her doctoral dissertation on plain language and worked on the plain language class action models at the Federal Judicial Center.
Kinsella Media ensures that class members will understand your notices, and courts will approve them. See examples of our plain language notices, or read our Plain Language Primer for Class Action Notice or our Plain Language Tool Kit for Class Action Notice.
