The district court abused its discretion in approving a $1.7 million fee award in a class action copyright infringement case in which class members received only $50,000 in a claims made settlement and no injunctive or other non-monetary relief.  While $1.7 million might be an actual assessment of fees by the hours times rate lodestar method, the resulting amount must be cross-checked against the actual or reasonably anticipated benefit to the class, which is measured by the actual claims payout, not the maximum possible claims payment under the settlement agreement.  Since amounts not claimed by class members reverted to the defendant under the settlement, the maximum sum payable under the settlement agreement was not a proper measure of the class benefit.  That plaintiffs’ attorneys spent much more than $50,000 in prosecuting the claim does not warrant a fee award that dwarfs the class benefit.
