I joined the "LCD screen" class action lawsuit last year figuring nothing would come from it. I just got a 217 dollar check in the mail today.

Actually, I still have one on a shelf, Pentium 4 with Windows 2000. I would not bother to waste the time to do anything for $15, however. Maybe if it was $150.

I got $45 from the Skechers settlement, which wasn't bad for shoes which cost me $95. Still waiting for my Ticketmaster credits though!
