    Why did you get $14?

    Did Paypal cost you some money.

    Now I am confused....14 dollars is a lot to get a lawsuit for?
    Why did you lose 14 dollars and how?

    It was most likely a group lawsuit where a whole bunch of people got together and then split the money.

    There was one a few years back against the record labels, and I got ten dollars I believe.

    Yeah, the only bad thing about class action suits is that while $20 million in damages may sound like a load of cash, (I'm not saying that's what this particular suit was for, just using it as an example) when you divide it between all the plaintiffs it doesn't amount to much.

    It doesn't amount to much for the plaintiffs but it sure as hell amounts to a bundle for the lawyers.

    The people who get rich off those things seem to be the people at the top of the "pyramid" lol

    Ha, yea, you could always say that. I guess that would be a benefit since you are getting even a little money when you don't expect it.
