1) $1,726379 in a Capital One Suit b/c a man "received upward of a dozen" unwanted phone calls over a short period of time which were w/o consent;

Now, I worked at nonprofits for 16 years and I know funding is ALWAYS a hustle to get. Largely b/c of these enormous cy pres settlements, they ended 2017 with a $5.4m surplus!!!
-- Filed papers in NY against a victim of child pornography who was seeking information about the people who shared and "liked" her underage images
-- Filed papers urging the court to rule against a man who suedGrindr for allowing a stalker to continuously use its product to send strangers (1200 + in total) to the man's home and job to fulfill his "rape fantasies"
-- Filed papers against a family whose daughter
So, to go over this, EFF collected $1.7m in other people's settlement money for a case
Also, I didn't mention all the word EFF does throughout the year around the country to block revenge porn criminal laws too.
[p.s. this is what folks like me do when the rest of the world is watching GoT]
