Windows 7: Judge nixes class-actions in Microsoft WGA lawsuit.

Judge nixes class-actions in Microsoft WGA lawsuit.

Quote:
A federal judge has killed class-action allegations in a lawsuit that accused Microsoft of misleading consumers when it fed them anti-piracy software under the auspices of a critical security update, according to court documents.

The move means that Microsoft will not be faced with millions in potential damages. Last fall, Microsoft's lawyers argued that a class-action lawsuit could involve "tens of millions" of customers who might be owed "hundreds of millions of dollars" if the company lost the case.

A class-action would have let virtually anyone who owned a Windows XP PC in mid-2006 to join the case without having to hire an attorney.

Anyone get an email about Seagate class-action lawsuit
(from memory, I deleted the email) Seems some attorneys are suing Seagate since the user gets 8% LESS disc storage than they advertise on their specs. I'd love to be an attorney and be able to generate my own money-grab. Actually, I'd prefer not to be an attorney (or know any).
