Class Action Lawyers Get Same Award As Clients

I wish this happened more often. Actually, I wish class action lawsuits were more stringently, well, regulated isn't the right word. But they too often end up screwing the people who were ostensibly to benefit from them. While the plaintiffs get gift cards or free downloads or an order of mozzarella sticks or whatever, the lawyers get millions of actual dollars.

In this case, though, the lawyers are getting the same award as their clients:

...Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Brett Klein thought it only fair to provide that Yorba Linda attorney Neil B. Fineman be paid his fee with “12,500 ten-dollar Windsor Fashions gift cards.”
