Who said Law School was a waste of time???

Lawyers seeking $258 million in legal fees from Microsoft's $1.1 billion class-action settlement in California are asking for too much, the world's largest software maker said Thursday.

The fees, the largest ever in an antitrust settlement, work out to $3,019 per hour for Eugene Crew, the class action's lead attorney, and more than $2,000 per hour for other attorneys, as well as hourly fees of $1,000 for administrative work.

I think microsoft should make a suggestion for a counter settlement. People get the money and lawyers get the vouchers :)
