The Principles aim to help judges, legislators, and others make aggregation decisions correctly, and to improve the management of cases in which aggregation is allowed. In addition to formal aggregation in litigated settings, such as with class actions, the work addresses a broader array of cases that are bundled together and settled or tried to test the value of related claims.
