    I have just received an email explaining that I may be able to benefit from a class action against Having just read The king of Torts , by John Grisham, I hads visions of a large payout. Therefore I read the attached PDF.

    This can be seen at:

    This case aledges that did not let their clients know that they would get a default holding page, advertising Big deal.

    The settlement is $5 off future registrations with Was this dreamed up by's marketing department or what!

    This is almost as bad as the original settlement against Microsoft for its anti-trust actions: vouchers to schools for Microsoft products, thus increasing Microsofts market share!

    The American judicial system seems totally barking mad to me!

    mass torts may cost a company a lot of money, but they only result in peanuts for the plaintiffs. pity, some of the situations really warrant larger settlements, but it's not practical...

    this sounds about in line with what i've been hearing lately, settlement wise...
