    isn't one hundred cents on the dollar just another way of saying dollar for dollar?

      Yes, and that's unheard of in class action suits… I usually get 12 cents and the lawyers get 12 million!

    The "bean counters" at Southwest screwed up. Taking away a benny retroactively is a No No!

    Today 3 postcards arrived, our address yet to other people, that we never heard of. Is this to appear that more people than necessary are involved to give the attorney fees a higher amount….looks like fraud to me.

      Hi L&C, Thanks for your comment–typically, when any class action notification is sent out via mail, whatever is being sent will be sent to the last known address of the individual–which can even be an address from several years ago. That may have been what happened in your instance–hard to know without more info. Regardless, the number of class members in a class action–i.e., the folks who are potentially entitled to partake in the class action settlement–at this point would not affect the attorneys' fees. There fees are based on a number of considerations and are then set as determined by the court. The only thing the number of claimants affects–and it's the number of claimants who then actually submit a claim form once they've received a notice–is potentially the size of each individual's settlement check if it's a cash settlement.

    Not much planning went into this lawsuit. For a measley drink coupon, Southwest is going to raise their ticket prices to account for the lawsuit. This selfish lawsuit is going to cost the passenger in the long run.

      I was just thinking the same thing. On the surface this lawsuit appears like a victory, but we all know that Southwest will just pass this expense on to the consumer unfortunately.

    It doesn't even matter if it's over a drink or two. You never mess with a lawyer, period.
