This story is so fitting:
Hundreds of thousands of people nationwide who received the Lyme disease vaccine have received what lawyers labeled an impressive settlement.
But if you are one of the recipients of Lymerix shots, don't bother looking for a check in the mail.
The benefits from an agreement finalized last week with the vaccine's manufacturer, SmithKline Beecham Corp., now GlaxoSmithKline P.L.C., are not monetary - unless you are one of the plaintiffs' attorneys, who will split more than $1 million.
Even sleazier than you thought possible. But the trial lawyers keep on winning!
