Like the man said, you are entitled to your own opinion, but not your own facts. Apple was convicted of anti-trust violations for agreeing to allow the publishers to set the prices, a perfectly legal matter called agency pricing, rather let the book seller set the prices. That is a factual statement of what happened. Asserting that they colluded to force e-book prices to go up from every store and that consumers paid too much is pure opinion.
Actually, it's Judge Cote's opinion, which was upheld on appeal and declined review by the Supreme Court, so as far as legal precedent goes, it's proven fact. From page 5, added emphasis mine:

Quote:
As described below, the Plaintiffs have shown that Apple conspired to raise the retail price of e-books and that they are entitled to injunctive relief.
You're entitled to your opinion, but when a case is decided by a court of law, and not overturned, then guess what? When you cite it, you can't be accused of expressing "pure opinion." You're expressing something that is legally considered a fact.

Did you get settlement money back in March 2014?

Fictionwise IIRC stopped carrying Agency titles the day it went into effect. If you purchased books at AllRomance you would had to have filed a claim back in 2012.

If you got money the first time around, you will automatically be sent a check this time as well.

I think Amazon, B&N, Sony, Apple, and Kobo were the only stores where you didn't need to file a claim form.

The publishers paid too. If you didn't get it then something went wrong somewhere else in the process. The publishers just handed over the total amount; they weren't responsible for allocating and distributing it. I don't remember how all that was handled.

Nope, not fact just your projection on the legal opinion of Judge Cote. I can just as easily point to the dissent which found no case existed.

You seriously don't understand how the legal system works. Appeals are based on legal doctrine, not facts. When the Supreme Court declines to hear a case, then that case has zero legal precedent. It would have had legal precedent if the Supreme Court had heard the case and decided to uphold the verdict. With a 4-4 Supreme Court, there are going to be a lot of cases that normally would have been heard and are now being declined.

I received a $3 credit...

For contacting Amazon. I had ~10 ebooks purchased during the period and didn't receive anything. So I just chatted with them. None were from the related publishers (some were from Random House), but Amazon gave me a $3 credit for being a valued customer.
