In an opt-in lawsuit, you must notify the courts of your desire to be included in the class of people covered by a class action lawsuit. In an opt-out lawsuit, you are automatically included in the class, regardless of whether or not you want to be. If you want to be excluded from the class, you must make your wishes known to the courts.
