West/Kaplan Propose to Settle Bar/Bri Class Action

From Law.com: West and Kaplan are proposing to settling the antitrust lawsuit over Bar/Bri for a total of $49M, of which $37M would go to class members (the rest goes to attorneys), or about $125/class member. If class members really were overcharged $1,000 each, this is a pretty good deal for West and Kaplan!

UPDATE: It looks like at least one plaintiff isn’t happy with this settlement. See the petition.
