This lawsuit is all about money, not privacy or helping people, or the dollar amount wouldn't be so large.
The amount in question is actually $18.75.
The 15 Billion is only a theoretical number if the lawsuit is successfull and every one of the 800 Million facebook users claim the money they are entitled according to the U.S. Wiretap Act.
So nobody will actually get rich. (Ok - perhaps a few lawyers will get rich.)
