The punishment is usually passed on to the consumer and the lawyers are the only ones who gain.

I was working at Verizon when a class action lawsuit occurred over per MB data charges. The class action suit sued Verizon stating that the customers would "accidentally press a button and be charged for data without being notified."

Verizon lost the suit, but passed the problem on to the consumers by REQUIRING anyone who purchased a phone capable of data connection to buy a data plan of at least 20MB whether they wanted to use data or not and even with non-smartphones. This way no one could claim that they accidentally hit a button and were not informed they would be charged for data.

As a consumer we should expect better representation out of these class-action lawsuits, the greed of lawyers is destroying our justice system entirely.
