RICO suit filed by law firm against lawyers who regularly file class-action objections

The law firm Edelson PC has filed a RICO suit against a bunch of lawyers and law firms that regularly represent objectors to class-action settlements. The complaint, filed in federal district court in Chicago, is worth a look. Basically, it alleges that the defendant lawyers and law firms are using frivolous objections (and frivolous appeals from trial-court approvals of class-action settlements) to extort money that would otherwise go to deserving class members and their lawyers.
