In my mind just a method of legal extortion. An attorney decides to bring a law suit. Even though there are no compensable damages to anyone. And in order to avoid spending millions to defend themselves, the defendent, decides to settle with the class. The attorneys want compensation for nearly 1 million dollars. No justification or itemized bill.
But you will note that the defendent has elected to oppose the attorney fee. And they will probably settle on that amount down to 10% of that, or so. But still the sleasebags might get $100,000 or more for filing some paperwork. And lets not forget, no one was damaged by a faulty product.
This is typical of class action suits. The attorneys make the money. The "class" gets very little.
