A US judge is reportedly worried about the settlement for tech workers in the no-hire pact lawsuit in Silicon Valley.

Judge Lucy Koh has to approve the $324m payout from Apple, Google, Intel and Adobe, after employees sued the four firms along with Pixar, Lucasfilm and Intuit over an alleged conspiracy to keep wages down by refusing to poach each other’s staff.

Koh has already approved separate settlements from Disney’s movie units and Intuit for around $20m in total, but she said she wasn’t sure that the four tech giants offer was good enough.

As with most cases like this, the only winners are the lawyers.
