If they want to call it a class action lawsuit, I hope the result are about the same. Something along the lines of a $10 "reverse" gift certificate that you promise to buy services from that company and may or may not ever use.
They were going to fight any rules that were put in place just to shift what the perceived "center ground" is.
It seems like a situation where I say you should get paid $10 and you think you should get $100. The compromise would be somewhere around $55. I can only go as low as $0 because I can't make you pay me for you doing the work, but you can go as high as you want. If you say you should get $1000, the middle is around $500 and if you settle for $200 it looks like a compromise but is still way above the $55 you should have gotten.
