Quote of the Day - The continuation of unilateral withdrawal without receiving anything must stop. In business there are no free lunches, and this is also true with politics. There can be no free withdrawals.
In what is generally considered a boon to Class-action Plaintiff's lawyers, a Pennsylvania federal district court ruled that if you opt-out, you may have to pay the Plaintiffs' laywers anyway.
This decision is largely confined to the facts, though. After five years' work by the Plainitiffs' lawyers, several large corporations, including Coca-Cola, opted out, and elected to bring their own suits. Apparenly, the federal district judge thought they would be able to benefit from the Plaintiff's lawyers' work, so he ordered the opt-out Plaintiffs to preserve some of their recovery to pay the Plaintiffs' lawyers.
Basically, you gotta pay to play.
