A lawyer who objected to a recent $49 million settlement with the makers of the BAR/BRI bar review course has announced the filing of a $48 million class action lawsuit on behalf of tens of thousands of consumers who were overcharged when purchasing BAR/BRI materials in preparation for the New York bar exam.

The allegations in the suit are similar to those in an antitrust case in California against the same defendants — namely, that the students were overcharged by $1,000 each, on average. In that case, which was filed on behalf of 300,000 current and former law students nationwide, a federal judge approved a $49 million settlement earlier this month, despite the filings of numerous objectors.
