Class-Action Abuses Highlighted

In Saturday’s Washington Post, I have a letter discussing class-action lawsuit abuses.  It discusses how class-action lawsuit “settlements intended to benefit consumers get paid instead to groups that lobby for affirmative action, hate-crimes laws, undocumented immigrants, and public funding for abortions.”  When lawyers bring lawsuits in the name of consumers, the money they recover should go to consumers, not to promote their lawyers’ ideologies.
