They settled now because they would have lost at least 10x that amount had it gone to trial. Unless, of course, they managed to buy off the judge.

Heh...;) 'Fraid not...;) They settled because if they had gone to court and *won* it would have cost them more than the settlement amount of $16M--the great majority of which went to the *lawyers* filing the suit--which is the only reason they filed it, of course. Guess what these attorneys are preparing to give away to each "member" of the "class" they pretended to represent? A *maximum* of $16 each--yes, that's *sixteen dollars* each. The lawyers will get the rest of it--millions of dollars. Technological class-action suits like these stink to high heaven and always have. IMO, they ought to be illegal altogether.
