Curio: Party Girl Celebration and Settlement Frustration | Its Only Fashion. Thanks to Cajsa Lilliehook.
Being somewhat oblivious to all the details here, aside from knowing somewhat of what was happening, all I can add to this is that Cajsa wrote up a piece that describes quite well how the law works. Unless you have the gold to finance yourself all the way through a case, sometimes settling is the only thing that can be done. Even if you come out on the winning side in a case, depending on the circumstances, you can’t expect much reward other than feeling you’ve trounced your opponent. My RL husband and I received a check recently for a class-action settlement we were apparently parties in due to some purchase or other. The fund for things like this is usually set up in the millions of dollars. Our check: $9.22.
The hell of it is that the law is the only thing besides religion and morals that helps keep society glued together. It ain’t too satisfyin’, Marshall — but it’s the thing that keeps us from each other’s throats.
