Today I opened an envelope from a class action settlement. I almost did not, since they usually are some long winded legal notice that even annoys lawyers like myself. Luckily, I did. It was a check for a settlement of a class action against Bar/Bri, the bar exam prep course company. In brief, the suit had alleged that Bar/Bri conspired to create a bar prep course monopoly and overcharged students. I agree with the allegations, and apparently they scared Bar/Bri. My check was for more than 13% of the original purchase price of the expensive course., or several hundred dollars. A nice surprise in my mail this weekend.
