Plaintiffs Refuse Facebook's Proposed Settlement

When have class action suits ever been good for anyone except the lawyers? Seriously, they make millions, plaintiffs usually get a $5 coupon.

Facebook, of course, believes otherwise and if users who are objecting to the settlement don't agree, they should just leave the class-action lawsuit, according to Michael Rhodes, the attorney hired by the social network to handle the case. "If it's such a terrible action, opt out," he said during a hearing in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California. If a plaintiff were to opt out of the class action, he or she could sue Facebook separately.
