Our firm has handled so much litigation caused by corporate wrongdoing and abuse that we sometimes take for granted that everybody knows how some companies in Corporate America operate. But, I fully realize that most folks really have no way to know about the depth of corporate wrongdoing and abuse – that is, until it affects them or a member of their family. The following news release was received from Public Justice and its content is most timely.
Consumers throughout America are supposed to be treated fairly and honestly. Unfortunately, many companies seek to maximize their profits by cheating their customers. Others make unsafe products that injure or even kill consumers. Public Justice’s litigation holds these companies accountable, wins compensation for their victims, and protects consumers rights nationwide.
Far too many corporations see their own customers as targets to be fleeced, and act on that urge. Litigating cases in state and federal courts throughout the country, Public Justice has won a broad range of individual cases and class actions. We have won compensation for the injured and helped get defective products off of the market. We’ve recovered millions for consumers who were victimized by payday lenders charging over 1,000% interest, credit card companies, cell phone providers, car dealers, HMO’s, and numerous other corporations using bait-and-switches and other illegal scams. We have forced cheating corporations to follow the law, and won landmark precedents that have changed the face of modern consumer law.
America was created by people who understood that power unchecked is power abused. That’s why we have separation of powers, the Bill of Rights, and the right to a day in court. For the past several years, however, many of those with power – in both the public and private sectors – have had few restraints. They could only be held accountable in the courts. So they unleashed an unprecedented, calculated, and fundamentally un-American attack: step by step, in area after area, they started trying to eliminate access to the courts and, ultimately, justice itself. That has not stopped. Look around. Throughout America, corporate wrongdoers are amending their consumer, employment, and investors’ contracts to explicitly ban individual and class action litigation. They’re working daily to expand federal preemption, mandatory arbitration, and court secrecy to preclude many suits and bury the rest. Meanwhile, the federal government and state legislatures are increasingly considering regulations and legislation that would bar court access and eliminate Americans’ rights. We cannot let that happen.
