Thank you for contacting Just Answer.



Answer: Certainly, you can sue. However, expect around $100,000 in attorney, expert, and court costs.


You can find class actions against the company typicall through google searches ( Then, once you find information, contact the attorney's office and discuss your potential case, and see if they'd take it on or can add it to an existing suit against the company.


Be aware that the real winners in class action suits are usually the attorneys (at least as far as monetary awards go).
