North Carolina Business Litigation Report

Rankin v. Microsoft Corp., June 10, 2004 (Tennille)(unpublished)

This Motion to Intervene before the Court in this class action case against Microsoft was filed not by a potential party, but by a group of lawyers seeking to share in any fee award to plaintiff's counsel. The Court refused to allow the lawyers to intervene, because lawyers who have never been counsel of record cannot have an interest in a settlement. Allowing intervention, which would have led to a fee dispute, would have delayed implementation of the settlement.
