Once the court has approved class action status and appointed the class representative, other persons affected by the litigation should be notified. Generally, the named plaintiff will be ordered to notify any persons who may be affected or who would qualify as class members. If the class if very large, individual notification may be impossible. In such a case, the notification must be reasonable. Notification by letter, flyer, magazine, newspaper, television or the radio may be sufficient, depending on the circumstances. Not every single person must be notified, but if the notification process was approved as reasonable and appropriate by the court, it will suffice.
