Settlement in authors v Harlequin lawsuit

From Publisher’s Lunch:

Settlement
As expected, the legal settlement of the class action suit brought by authors against Harlequin which we reported on in April was approved by the court. Qualifying authors with contracts signed between 1990 and 2004, who were seeking additional payment for books for which Harlequin licensed ebook rights to its own subsidiaries, will share a pool of just over $3 million (with another $1.05 million going to attorneys and other costs). Complete information is posted at the settlement site.
