Rather than limiting class actions that protect consumers from bad CEOs - e.g. Enron, Worldcom, etc. - perhaps the government ought to work on laws limiting CEO compensation. Today's news shows '04 CEO compensation at $4,419,300.00 a year. Work 10-15 years and you too can have $44,193,000.00 to $66,289,500.00. Bottom line CEOs, don't come whining about a Wisconsin jury verdict award of $17,000,000.00 to a quadriplegic or a jury verdict award of $3,900,000.00 to a woman suffering chronic pain from a herniated disk.
