Checks are in the mail to the claimants in Electronic Arts’ football monopoly class-action lawsuit, in which the company settled out of court to pay $27 million in lawyers fees and payouts to users. To users who submitted their claim prior to May 15th these year, $20 were awarded for every copy of Madden or NCAA Football they bought last generation and another $5 for each copy of Madden purchased on a current gen system.

The $27 million EA must payout as the result of a class-action lawsuit over its NFL monopoly has been tied up by an appeal by one of the claimants. Kotaku reports one beneficiary of the suit has filed an objection to the lawyer’s fees involved in the case. The suit dates back to 2008 and alleges EA Sports’ exclusivity deal with the NFL allowed it to jack up game prices and kill off the competition. The publisher chose to settle out of court.
