“Under the Class Action Fairness Act, the Department of Justice plays an important role in reviewing the reasonableness and adequacy of proposed class action settlements,” said Principal Deputy Associate Attorney General Jesse Panuccio. “Settlements such as this one raise serious fairness concerns by awarding class members only illusory relief while the lawyers bringing the lawsuit are awarded substantial fees. We will continue to scrutinize such proposed settlements to ensure they comport with the law and are fair, reasonable, and adequate.”
