Todays question for the masses.
From the outside, Class Action Lawsuits look like a good racket for lawyers, promising huge fees for them and (near) worthless coupons for anyone ambitious enough to fill in the paperwork. And yet, there’s never been a greater need to have useable means to hold large Corporations accountable (see Wells Fargo — Did any of the people who incurred fees for the fraudulent accounts get any punitive damages from the bank ?) So the question is . . .
Are there any organizations or professionals looking at reforming class action lawsuits in a manner that would provide injured plaintiffs some real compensation as opposed to chump change? If one googles, lots of sites with a decidedly pro-business / Screw the consumer slant can be found. Where is the left-wing perspective on this??
