Note the comment "her son in law is a lawyer". I have been a participant in 2 class action lawsuits, and have closely watched several others. In all of the successful ones each lawyer involved got several million dollars, but the consumers got practically nothing. One of them was a $20 certificate to purchase an item from the same company, and the others were checks between $12 and $25 which was less than 1/4 of what the consumer was shorted in what the advertising said and what he got. I am not saying all lawyers are bad, but the ones that go after the Class Action suits appear to be in strictly for the money with no real interest in helping the consume.

Note, Super glue and Krazy glue at one time came with instructions that if gluing porous items such as wood or leather you should apply a coating to the surface and allow it to dry before making the final application.

Remember the movie "The Jerk"? Steve Martin invented the "Opti-grab", a little handle put out in front of eyeglasses to make them easier to put on and remove. Turns out it made everybody cross-eyed. Class action lawsuit followed, and Martin ended up having to personally write checks for $1.11 to about a million people.

You're right in observing that class actions are just a money-making project for lawyers, and any benefits to the consumer are purely incidental. They're all competing for clients, especially on medical stuff. You've all seen the mesothelioma ads- several competing law firms are trying to enlist as many plaintiffs as possible. A recent John Grisham novel, "The Litigators", is an excellent read on that subject.

I just finished "The Litigators" yesterday. I have read most of Grisham"s books, and like them a lot, but I have often been disappointed in the endings. Not this one. A fine book, with a teaser for a newer book, "Calico Joe" at the end, which I hope to get soon--the teaser caught me!

I have always loved to read and almost always have a novel going. I prefer paperbacks, since they store easier and cost less. I don"t know how many I have, but LOTS. More all the time.

I use Krazy Glue and Super Glue for some things, and I have always thought they worked very well to glue things that fit together very tightly. They also work great for paper cuts or cracks in the ends of fingers, although that might not be an APPROVED use by the manufacturer.

Mass torts may have their place, but from what I have read about a few of them, most of the time the actual or alleged victim ends up getting almost nothing. My wife joined a lawsuit for a diet drug she had taken years ago, but in the screening that was done, the doctors decided that her heart had no damage. A relief that there was no damage, and she did not have to pay for the screening, but she did not receive a cent out of the deal. Which was probably justice. I do think that some people and some lawyers were successful in getting some money from the drug manufacturer.
