Comments on: SCOTUS to decide if ‘unharmed’ plaintiffs have right to sue http://blogs.reuters.com/alison-frankel/2015/04/27/scotus-to-decide-if-unharmed-plaintiffs-have-right-to-sue/ On the Case Fri, 15 Jul 2016 20:42:45 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: MassResident http://blogs.reuters.com/alison-frankel/2015/04/27/scotus-to-decide-if-unharmed-plaintiffs-have-right-to-sue/#comment-4048 Mon, 04 May 2015 17:55:11 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/alison-frankel/?p=5207#comment-4048 The “class action lawsuit” concept has proved to be a great profit opportunity for legal firms but little help to consumers. It is an open question whether consumers save money when companies have to raise prices to cover the legal fees required to defend themselves against law suits. Usually compensation to the consumers is negligible and the lawyers pocket the bulk of the awards. Ralph Nader’s claim to be a “consumer advocate” looks more questionable to me every time I look at the effects of the laws his organizations lobby for.

Common Sense). So how high can the hurdle be for showing damages?
