Its great that sometimes employees are willing to sue in such cases. And sometimes they win.


I suspect a big bunch of trial lawyers are going to rake in several hundred million in 'fees' for this lawsuit/result.

Many people about to retire, or were forced to retire, probably got mightly ticked off about the loss of pension income and were willing to sue. I doubt many who were in jeopardy of having their jobs downsized or moved overseas actively agitated for the lawsuit, but joined in anyway.
