The Big Battle has begun.
Nothing will come of it. Big corporations nowadays dont get punished.
There will probably be a settlement of about 10 percent of the profits, with no wrongdoing admitted.
a private person is bringing a law suit, now that's an historical event I tell you
love the RICO reference, which actually infers some sort of federal prosecution which if true would definitely be newsworthy
You need to study "Civil RICO" - it permits ANY U.S. Citizen to become a "Private Attorney General";
and was meant to be utilized by Congress - so much so - they provide treble damages.
One only needs TWO "predicate act" violations (under Title 18 Section 1961);
and we've got over 100 "predicate act" felony violations.
I've studied this section of law for months - before filing the Complaint.
Best of luck to you, LaserHaas! I hope you have outstanding success!
Willie you should be supporting this effort. This is not a liberal vs. Conservative thing. This law he is using to do this is about the power of a U.S. citizen to stand up and fight corruption REGARDLESS of the politics of the party involved. Tell me you wouldn't support this if it was someone going after Obama or Clinton? Damn right you would. SUPPORT THE MAN!
I have no information to support or oppose, I'll let the facts play themselves out
I was just saying RICO litigation brought about by a private citizen carries a lot less weight than if the federal government was bringing RICO charges
