Our efforts, along with those of other groups/individuals including the Center for Class Action Fairness, have paid off and the settlement has been rejected!
“A federal judge refused to sign off on a second settlement in the BAR/BRI antitrust litigation after objectors raised concerns that Kaplan Inc.’s portion of the deal involved coupons…U.S. District Judge Manual Real in Los Angeles had preliminarily approved the deal on March 21. But during a final settlement hearing on June 20, Real indicated that he had concerns about the coupons, which would provide discounts on future Kaplan courses, according to lawyers who attended the hearing. He also cited qualms about the value of the settlement, which includes about $1.7 million in attorney fees, the lawyers said.”
