Atlantic reporter Rebecca Greenfield complains about meaningless relief in Apple class actions, but fails to understand that these particular class actions are brought for the benefit of the attorneys rather than the clients. [via Overlawyered]
MI's own Marie Gryphon, represented by me and Dan Greenberg, has filed an objection to the Magsafe settlement. (This objection is not done on behalf of the Manhattan Institute.) In its opposition to the objections lawyers for defendant Apple falsely accuses me of being opposed to all class actions, and argues that the court should discount Marie's objection because she works for the Cato Institute [sic]. General counsels take note: add Morrison & Foerster to the list of law firms who make arguments (and pretty stupid arguments at that) against their clients' long-term interests in the hopes of momentary advantage.
