And So Begins the ‘Victims Project’

By August 8, 2005General

There are victims and there are victims. It seems that every day we are treated to a new diet of victims on TV and other media: victims of mold, of hot coffee, of spotted owls swooping down and snatching babies, and God only knows what else. Well, the time has come for the real victims in this charade to speak. The American Justice Partnership (Anybody here opposed to justice…?) has started a “Victim’s Project” for victims of lawsuit abuse to weigh in. See the box below and click on the appropriate links to weigh in. There are links for individuals, small businesses and investors. We heard from one member company a while ago who was the victim of a frivolous shareholder suit which they of course paid millions of dollars to settle. (See, that’s how the con works). Under this particular statute, money not claimed by shareholders within a certain period (something like 2-3 yrs) reverts to the company. And in this case, the lion’s share of the money went unclaimed and did in fact return to the company, but not before the lawyers took their 33%… How about a rule that says that no lawyer In a class action can take less than any plaintiff? That’d reduce the number of claims in a hurry.

Watch this space in the coming days for more news about lawyers who are in our view overreaching. And do click on the link below if you’ve been a victim of lawsuit abuse.
