Class-Action Lawsuits Gone Wild

By itself, this isn’t such a big deal: A non-profit hospital system in upstate New York settles a class-action lawsuit brought by a couple of nurses for $1.25 million. Plaintiffs alleged that the hospitals conspired to artificially lower nurses’ wages.

The Wall Street Journal reports that the settlement will be filed today at the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of New York. Another paper reports that the suit was duplicated in Detroit, Chicago, Memphis, & San Antonio.
