Actually, what's likely to happen is that you (and all the other members of the class) will get a coupon good for $25 off on your first three month's of AOL service. Maybe they'll throw in one of their nifty CDs. The lawyers, of course, will pocket millions - they're the ones who have to worry about tax implications. (IMHO, class actions serve mainly to enrich the lawyers. They rarely provide a substantial benefit to the individual members of the class.)

I do realize this and if it was in my account, I might choose to ignore it. Right now I have this one for the kid and a different one for my mother so I feel more of an obligation to respond to them. OTOH, I did receive over $100 from a class action concerning price fixing for a specific drug.
