This time, the babies weren’t the only ones crying foul. Last Friday, the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals threw out a class action lawsuit settlement plaintiffs reached with Proctor & Gamble Co. (P&G), saying the attorneys who brought the suit were receiving too high a share.
In 2011, P&G agreed to pay $3 million settlement after a few dozen plaintiffs had claimed that Pampers Dry Max diapers caused rashes on babies. The attorneys that brought the suit were to receive $2.73 million of that total. Each of plaintiffs in the suit would receive $1,000 for their troubles.
