In a July 30 story that quotes and appears to rely heavily on my 2008 article on cy pres, Roger Parloff discusses the use of cy pres in tech-company class action settlements, noting the pre-existing relationship between Google and Facebook and many of its cy pres recipients. We previously discussed the Google Buzz cy pres last year, and have been covering the Fraley v. Facebook case.
