Plenty of folks have noted the sunscreen lawsuit (e.g., Overlawyered, Point of Law). It's worth emphasizing what PoL notes but most news reports have not -- it's not a personal injury suit. Instead, the complaint asserts fraud and statutory claims:
As I tend to do for no real reason besides wondering who would want to be in such a suit, I did Google searches for the named plaintiffs with relatively uncommon-seeming names. I sort of doubt it's the same person, but I note that one plaintiff is named Cristina Williams, and there exists such a person in L.A. with a website (that starts playing music at you without warning). Another plaintiff posted this entertaining series of messages about insurance claims, and, perhaps not surprisingly, expressed interest in another class action.
