Companies hiring cheap interpreters and translators could be next.

Class Action Apr 16, 2008

This is a class action against the Canadian government, it does not say who filed it. It is not against any individual. However, they must have big problems there and I am sure our problems here south of the border are vastly greater.

I wouldn't take this at face value Apr 17, 2008

This is what convicts do, pretty much on a regular basis: they file frivolous lawsuits that severely clog the system. Who can blame them - they have nothing to lose and everything to gain. At the very least, there's entertainment value in that.
