We Americans are a self-entitled and litigious people.
What it rests on is if the litigators working on the case think they can sell it far enough into the process to get a settlement out of EA.
Yeah, if you use knockoff batteries.
Edit- also, iphones can cause fatal electrocution if you use them while it's plugged in. Both beg the question of "why do you use your phone in this manner?"

you get a few dollars if that and they get fame and richer when it settles out of court
You seem to be implying that this is not how it should be.
Do the lawyers not do the work while we sit on out butts and complain about EA?
Should they not be rewarded for their efforts?
And it's not like they take a majority of the money. They take their contractually agreed upon cut. Probably around a third. The Madden guys got 27%.
And then the consumers get the rest.
