@forcing_you_to_think, no it's not about the size of the payout. It's about the scale of the problem.

One employer setting that policy for one job is an individual job/business problem. ACLU has limited resources.

However, this Facebook issue is a systemic issue that affects thousands of businesses, hundreds of thousands of jobs, and millions of people. At the low end! Quite likely an order of magnitude or even 2 worse. And it indicates a societal issue. It is more likely to set a viable, wide-ranging legal precedent than dealing with a single job.

You think that really compares to a single job affecting a few dozen people?
