Gift Card Judge Censured

Last year a California class action suit resulted in a settlement where each class member received a $10 gift card from the defendant store. The settlement called for the plaintiff’s lawyer to get $175,000 125,000 (sorry -typo)

The judge who approved the settlement didn’t like it, and ordered the lawyer to also take payment in $10 gift cards from the store.

Boing Boing refers to a post on the Lowering the Bar blog that says that judge has been disciplined for that by the state Commission on Judicial Performance.

No word on the fate of the lawyer’s gift cards.
