U.S. District Judge William Alsup blasted a proposed class action settlement recently for giving plaintiffs attorneys up to $2.25 million in fees while leaving former Oracle Corp. employees with “dimes on the dollar” for unpaid overtime claims.

In his June 19 order, the Northern District of California judge said the $9 million deal amounted to a “collusive settlement” and a “bonanza” for Oracle, the plaintiffs lawyers and the name plaintiffs. The plaintiffs are represented by San Francisco’s Schneider & Wallace and Santa Barbara solo Christina Djernaes; Oracle is represented by Paul, Hastings, Janofsky & Walker.
