The Time Online reports the first settlement of an aggregate lawsuit in the United Kingdom.

A retailer agreed to reimburse 1000 purchasers who overpaid for replica soccer jerseys 20 pounds each.

This is the first settlement announced under the Enterprise Act of 2002, which authorizes proceedings similar in some ways to American-style class actions.

We’re not too worried about the 20,000 pounds being paid in the settlement.

But we’re awfully worried about this settlement as a harbinger of things to come.

Hat tip to Point of Law.
