MILWAUKEE (AP) — If you're one of the tens of millions of people who has purchased a 6- or 12-inch Subway sandwich in the U.S. since 2003, you're entitled to a cut of a class action settlement involving the franchise.

But the long and short of it is, only the nine named plaintiffs in the preliminary resolution approved by a federal judge in Milwaukee this month will see any money — up to $1,000 each.

However, the rest of us do win Subway's assurance that it will pay more attention to size, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports (http://bit.ly/1PGwl9y ).

The legal action grew from a 2012 social media post about a foot-long sub that came up short.

Subway notes none of its marketing was found improper and says it just wants its customers happy.
