The law: it's not the same for lawyers

www.loweringthebar.net/2010/02/Judge reprimanded for forcing attorney to get sam pay as defendents

An attorney won a class action lawsuit, and the reward to the plaintiffs was that everyone got a $10 gift card to spend at the store that has screwed them over in the first place.  The judge said, "If it's good enough for your clients, it must be good enough for you, too", and ordered that he take his $125,000 fee in $10 gift cards at the store that had screwed over his clients.

The judge has been reprimanded, and the lawyer will get cash.  Pity.  Since the judge has retired anyway, it's BFD time.
