So let me get this straight. Consumers were harmed by the inflated charges yet the $2.25M goes into the state coffers because they took the time to investigate and file the case? How is this considered a win for anyone but the attorneys involved?

Sounds like Safeway got screwed and so did the 99%. I'm sure Safeway will have to raise prices to cover their losses on this. Again, the consumer gets screwed.
