(“‘The office of the chancellor is to correct men’s consciences for frauds, breaches of trust, wrongs and oppressions of what nature soever they be, and to soften and mollify the extremity of the law.’”. Protecting the individual litigant, however, may also provide benefit to those who, although represented in the collective entity in the suit against that particular plaintiff, may on another day be injured litigants themselves.
