Judge rejects Facebook ad lawsuit settlement – at least in part due to $10M attorneys’ fees allowance.

Oy! It is the behavior like that squashed by Judge Seeborg in this case that make ALL lawyers look terrible. The fact that neither plaintiffs’ counsel nor Facebooks attorneys even contemplated just how ridiculous a potential award of $10M in fees in a case where there would be $0 distributed the victorious (at least in settlement) class is simply stunning!

 

Sometimes as a lawyer, it gets tiresome being vilified from what feels like all sides. But then fellow members of the bar go and pull boneheaded moves like this and it is obvious how lawyers get such a bad reputation. >(
