Multidistrict litigation (MDL) cases are cases that are a consolidation of lawsuits filed in several federal courts across the country that have similar claims and involve common parties.
In an MDL, one judge presides over the pre-trial proceedings. Even the cases are before the same court, each lawsuit remains an individual claim. It is not a class-action.
