Weekend fun

Further to recent comments about the perils of some settlements, it is with some joy I offer this new Seventh Circuit case. The plaintiff got a foot long sandwich from Subway. The sandwich was only 11 inches. Quelle horreur. A class action was filed. It turns out it wasn't Subway's fault. Subway paid north of half a million to the lawyers and put in place meaningless standards, at which point the district court approved the settlement.

Finding it to be utter nonsense, the Seventh Circuit rejected it. Good for them. The opinion is brief, and well worth a read.
