Is Civil Litigation a Level Playing Field?

Click on the link here to watch a Yahoo Finance reporter suggest that the employee lawsuit filed against Wells Fargo for enforcing unrealistic sales goals necessitating unethical conduct is likely bogus because "It was filed by a one-man law firm."  If the rules of civil litigation made a level playing field, then this would not be relevant.  If courts were really the great levellor where any person can take on a powerful party and have a real chance at justice, this would not be relevant.

Since it is apparently relevant, then maybe those other things are not true.

In the movie clip below from "The Rainmaker," sole practitioner Rudy Baylor tries to take a corporate deposition of the defendant insurance company represented by a "big" law firm.
