Default Class Action Lawsuit Against Ebay's Practice of Resolving Disputes in Favor of Buyer

Dear lawyers of World Law Direct:
Is there a chance to file class action lawsuit against Ebay's practice of resolving disputes between buyer and seller? Ebay's dispute resolution workflow is designed in favor of buyer and at the same time still collects fees from seller. There are many sellers from different forums will be happy to join the lawsuit, we need a law firm that will take the initiative of filing.
Thank you for your time and looking forward to hear from you.

[SIZE=5]I donít see how such a legal endeavor/vendetta could possible meet the prerequisites. Particularly the requirement that the factual issues and claims and defenses of the parties sought to be represented would be common to all members of the class. [/SIZE]
[SIZE=5] [/SIZE]
[SIZE=5]Other than that their individual claims have been denied, how could it be established that the individual claims of the parties to be represented are typical of the class.[/SIZE]
[SIZE=5] [/SIZE]
[SIZE=5]Furthermore, how could the individual claims and defenses of the sellers, who would be the real parties to be affected, be adequately represented much less adjudicated?[/SIZE]
[SIZE=5] [/SIZE]
[SIZE=5]Before trying to launch such a process, I suggest that you read Section 23 of the FRCP[/SIZE]

Sorry for the above scrambled text, but my efforts to edit were denied - twice!

ebay's user agreements states they have no involvement in the transactions. Therefore, they have no authority to issue unilateral, arbitrary refunds. Especially sight unseen, and without any recourse for the seller.

Having been on both sides on eBay, both buyer and seller, and have participated in a few disputed transactions, I personally cannot say that disputes are unilaterally nor always decided in favor of the buyer.

Before launching any kind of large scale, broad class action type suit, one needs to have the numbers and facts.

How about EBay's regular practice of holding back funds of sellers who are stellar but fail to meet their ridiculous, stringent and definitely lawyer bought standards. My feedback has been 95 - 99% positive for the last 2 quarters yet ebay always finds their little loophole to hold my money. WHO IS GAINING INTEREST ON THIS MONEY WHILE THEY HOLD IT? It is disgusting what they get away with and I am willing to work TIRELESSLY and devote 100% of my time to sue them.

I too would love to join a lawsuit. I was scammed by a buyer (one of the many) & learned the hard way why NOT to sell anything to anyone from Russia. The buyer has been flagged multiple times, its clear by looking at his feedback of sellers that he frequently claims "not received," yet there are still victims of his conduct. He admitted to receiving the item (in his feedback for me) & then proceeded to "report" as not received. I cannot sell, my husband cannot sell, even my former roommate was banned - because of this scum bag. They refunded him (multiple times) for many items that he didn't receive, some on consecutive days - and he's still a buyer.

If there is ever a class action suit against ebay I'm on board. From their injustice to sellers, to the way they rate and conveniently hold back funds to the way they let buyers get away with murder. I can go on and on. I know that if an attorney ever takes on the extraordinary task of filing a lawsuit, he/she will have millions of supporters. Myself first in line.
