This should be standard practice:

The client class members were to receive only gift cards, not cash, in the settlement with Windsor Fashions, a clothing retailer, so Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Brett Klein thought it only fair to provide that Yorba Linda attorney Neil B. Fineman be paid his fee with "12,500 ten-dollar Windsor Fashions gift cards." (Metropolitan News-Enterprise via California Civil Justice Blog).

The number of nuisance suits that right trivial "wrongs" with tiny coupons, while the lawyers collect cash, is ridiculous.
