"Missouri lawyers weigh in on class action concerns"



I'm not a Missouri lawyer, but I'm quoted in a Missouri Lawyers Media story on class action settlements, though not given a chance to rebut the ludicrous claim of the plaintiffs' lawyer that the objection to the rip-off Bachman v. A.G Edwards "proceeds from a false premise." Even the sloppy Missouri Court of Appeal decision found that the "vouchers" were "coupons"; they just refused to address the failure of the Missouri lower court to follow the law and value the coupons at something other than face value. Literally refused: it acknowledged that we had made the argument, and then did not rule on it or give any reason for rejecting it.
