Case Detail


Benney v. Sprint Corp
On July 12, 2006, WLF filed formal objections in the District Court of Wyandotte, Kansas to the proposed award of $5 million in attorneys' fees to plaintiffs' counsel and $10,000 to each of their five clients who are lead plaintiffs in a class action lawsuit. The suit was brought on behalf of current and former Sprint wireless customers, many of whom will receive only prepaid phone cards of nominal value as part of this nationwide class action settlement. WLF filed the objections on behalf of a former Sprint customer as part of its legal reform efforts to curtail abusive class action cases where absent class members often receive little or no compensation or worthless coupons, while class action attorneys reap millions of dollars.
Case Status:
Pending. A hearing is scheduled for September 12, 2006.
