SCOTUS Knifes Class Action Law

“Honestly, lawyers making millions off class-action lawsuits doesn’t bother me anywhere near as much as the fact that now it’s de facto okay for a corporation to literally defraud millions of people for $20-$50 each on the basis that they could never be sued by those people through a class action. Class action lawyers were serving a valuable (albeit rent-seeking) role of deterring widespread fraudulent nickel-and-diming. Prepare to start seeing all kinds of new illegal fees on your cell phone bills, cable bills, car loan applications, rent, and so forth. Who cares if it’s illegal if it’s uneconomical for your customers to sue you for it? It’s open fucking season on consumers, courtesy of the Roberts court.”
