I just saw the issues regarding attorneys' fees was recently resolved and they claim there's no estimated distribution date on proceeds. (I hope it's not like some stupid book of barbri coupons.)

Thanks! I went through my emails regarding this case. My claim was filed in June 2013! Hoping for a few hundred, but not holding my breath...

I once got a class action notice re Barbri.
The settlement was a discount coupon on you guessed it, another state's bar review.

Looks like the gist of the case is Barbri made a deal with Kaplan so that Kaplan got LSAT prep, which is 1300, and Barbri got the more lucrative full service bar course, 6000, which it says Barbri enforced by "a variety of means". What does that mean, did Conviser himself negotiate the deal?

"BAR/BRI provides full service bar review courses throughout the United States aimed at assisting would-be attorneys to prepare to take one or more of the bar examinations that are required by each state and the District of Columbia before an attorney obtains a license to practice law. Plaintiffs alleged that BAR/BRI violated federal antitrust laws by agreeing with Kaplan to limit competition in the market for full service bar review courses. West was the owner of BAR/BRI during the relevant period and is a Defendant for that reason. The other Defendant is Kaplan. Plaintiffs alleged that BAR/BRI agreed not to compete in the LSAT business and that Kaplan agreed not to compete in the bar review business, thereby allocating to BAR/BRI the market for full-service bar review courses in the United States and preventing a competitive bar review course from being marketed and sold.

Plaintiffs also alleged that BAR/BRI unlawfully acquired and maintained a monopoly in the market for full service bar review courses in the United States and also conspired to monopolize that market, all through a variety of means"
