On Monday, I noted that:
Over the weekend, Facebook quietly agreed to a $10 million settlement in a privacy lawsuit. The money is to go to charity, according to Reuters
though I have to wonder how much is going to the lawyers.
Now we have our answer. According to today's New York Times article fleshing out the details of the settlement:
The company also agreed to pay $10 million in plaintiffs’ legal fees.
So a $10 million settlement plus $10 million in legal fees. And I wonder why people hate lawyers.
If there is any question left in anybody's mind that the "sponsored stories" lawsuit was ridiculous, please let me know.
