In re. Ameritrade Accountholder Litigation: Court Rejects Class Settlement He Viewed as Providing Members of Plaintiff Class with No Real Benefits
On October 23, 2009, Judge Vaughn Walker did something that doesn’t happen very often. He rejected final approval of a class action settlement that was opposed by less than .001% of the members of the plaintiffs’ class. The reason: he had come to believe that while the settlement would cost Ameritrade millions, and pay $1.87 million to the plaintiffs’ counsel, it ultimately provided the plaintiffs themselves with no real benefits.
The case is the In re TD Ameritrade “
