View Full Version : Are class action suits going overboard now?

I have to say, I've been getting a lot of notices lately telling me how happy I should be to be involved in a class action suit against so and so for such and such.

The latest one, today in fact, was from a scummy lawyer in Florida who is suing "on my behalf" valvoline instant oil changes for their "enviornmental service fees". He is claiming 250,000.00 for "us" and 1,044,000.00 for himself/his firm.

Oh, and the 250,000.00 is shared by everyone who's gotten an oil change in the last year or 2 via a $5.00 off coupon.

So, I get a 5 dollar coupon, he gets 1.04 million dollars.

Now I see bayer is being sued, again, on my behalf, over some alleged price fixing on rubber chemicals, making prices of rubber items go up. Lawyers are seeking 4.2 million, 1/3 of which goes to them with an additional "service fee" of 1,500.00 per person they're representing. On top of that, you don't have to do anything to be represented, but you DO have to request NOT to be.
