I’ve just received an interesting press release from Los Angeles law firm Kabateck Brown Kellner LLP. They’re clearly unhappy with the recent $90 million settlement and I’m guessing would like to encourage others to think the same way.
They obviously have their own motives, but I thought the release made some valid points, so here it is in full.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE April 26, 2006
GOOGLE’S $90 MILLION ARKANSAS CLICK FRAUD SETTLEMENT
LEAVES LITTLE FOR VICTIMS
LOS ANGELES, CALIF. â€“Brian Kabateck, an attorney representing plaintiffs in a Federal Court “click fraud” class action pending against Google in California, says the $90 million preliminary settlement in an Arkansas case announced April 20 includes a $30 million windfall for the plaintiffs’ attorneys but provides only pennies in credits to Google click fraud victims. The most a victim can expect to receive is about a half a cent for every $1 lost to click fraud.
