    Thank you Mr. Blumenthal

    Today I received my settlement payment from the Attorney General for the State of Connecticut regarding the Compact Disc Minimum Advertised Price Antitrust Litigation. Sections of the Attorney General's letter read:

    This lawsuit was brought by the Attorneys General of 43 states and three territories and by counsel for Private Class Plaintiffs on behalf of purchasers of music CDs. In accordance with the terms of the court-approved settlement, payment is being made to music purchasers who filed a valid and timely claim...
    It is a pleasure to bring this matter to a satisfactory conclusion and to return value to consumers who purchased CDs while the challenged pricing policies were in effect.

    The attached check for $13.86 more than makes up for my meager $0.25/hr raise while working at Strawberries in high school.
