  • Headnote
    This article discusses the fact that the new consumer protection law (law no 3587/2007 that implemented the UCP Directive into the Greek legal framework) introduces the class action as a new way of judicial redress that is supplementary to the individual action. It focuses on the fact that the legal consequences of a judgment over a class action shall apply to all persons, even if they are not parties to the action (erga omnes).
