You are clearly trolling but your argument is also flawed. If the damages are too high, go to Court and let an independent Judge decide the sum. Also, its a two way street negotiating settlement. If the defendants don't want to pay it, don't. No one is forcing them to agree to the damages.
I'm a defendant lawyer and I always scrutinise damages and have a bracket of what is reasonable based on case law. Guess what, 99% of the time the cases settle within the bracket, usually about 15-20% below the top of the bracket.
