    So how does the public benefit from this? Sure, the ABC caught what Briad was doing. That is what they are supposed to do for the tax dollars we pay them. But who does the $500K fine go to? It SHOULD be going back to the customers who were cheated. A better solution would be for the ABC to distribute 100,000 coupons, each for $5 off on a drink at TGI Fridays.

    And as for this class action suit ... who will benefit from it? Even with triple damages, the plaintiffs will only receive less than $50 each. Only the lawyers will rake in the big bucks. And how did these plaintiff's learn of the ABC's investigation just two days after, and months before it was announced to the public? I smell another scam.
