Speaking of Mega-Millions, ATT wins big in a lawsuit they lost.

att has been charging a $1.99 'administrative fee' to post-paid plans for years.

A class action lawsuit was filed because the fee was hidden and characterized according to plaintiffs, as bait-and-switch pricing.

Under the $14M settlement between lawyers, att customers will get a small percentage of what att charged, and att gets to keep the rest of the for-profit add-on fee.

Plaintiff lawyers didn't want to take the case to trial, and bailed settled when they felt they made enough off of att (my take).

The judge, for some reason, allowed the settlement to stand, netting plaintiff lawyers $3.5M for their trouble.

I got a text from att telling me, a customer since 2007, that I could file a claim by following the enclosed link or calling a toll-free number.

As I and many other customers found, the att link goes to blank webpage that never resolves.

The att $14M payout is just the cost of doing business.

This isn't the first, and with no meaningful accountability, it won't be the last, but such weak paybacks will remain the cost of doing business.

More details than I cared to type:

I am that Masked Man.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

"All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke
“Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." - Eli Weisel

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt (1918)

"I don’t want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was a wedding between the religious fundamentalists and the political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it." - Billy Graham 1981

"Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can't and won't compromise" - Barry Goldwater

If att posts a working link, perhaps I'll pass that on.
