Hey Folks, we’re getting a dollar from the State of Florida. They recently settled a lawsuit brought by four people for selling names and addresses of people who licensed their automobiles in Florida. Each person who so registered their vehicle between 1998 and 2004 gets a dollar off their next renewal.
The four who brought the lawsuit get $3000 each.
The lawyers get $2.83 million in fees plus $20,000 in costs.
Which reminds me of a joke. What’s the difference between a lawyer and a carp? One’s a scum-sucking bottom-feeder, the other is a fish.
