Summary
  1. Class counsels' fee request constitutes 100% of the class benefit.
  2. "Clear sailing" and "kicker" provisions are improper.
  3. Injunctive relief is valueless and only benefits future customers, not class members who have been harmed.
  4. Settlement should not require class members to waive monetary damages.
  5. Class representatives and class counsel have violated their fiduciary duty to the class.
