I am involved in the VW diesel issue and would like to file suit against VW. But not sure the benefits of joining a class action suit or going out on my own with an independent attorney. The firms don't explain it to you clearly.
Its your decision how you wish to proceed to try to recover against VW for your loss. We are preparing lawsuits for state court with co-counsel in several states, including Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Florida. We are happy to try to help steer you in the right direction if you want.See question
I bought a house almost two years ago. the house has Polybutylene piping. I wasn't told before hand or informed of any past lawsuits or issues until i had a leak in the wall. I have searched some articles online about past class action lawsuits w...
The case settled more than a decade ago. It's unlikely you are still able to recover if your home meets the class definition. If I recall correctly, one of the lead Plaintiffs' names was Cox and it's was settled in a southern court. If you are unsuccessful in locating the case/lawyers, we can probably find out for you.See question
Individual party brought own legal action - which to date, has seen the proper results. Rest of similar situated individuals did not bring own suit and are in a class action. The "CLASS" has not seen relief as a remedy can not be determined due t...
What's missing from you query is whether the "class" in the case has been certified. If so, and absent class members did not opt out, they will be bound by the eventual resolution of the representative action, whether favorable or unfavorable. Only those who timely opt out have the right to proceed individually. If there has been no certification, all members of the putative class have the right to proceed individually. Unless the individual in the solo action wants to proceed as a representative, you can't simply "join" that action. You can start your own action, and argue that the favorable adjudication in the related action "estops" the common defendant from relitigating the overlapping factual and legal issues. Hope that helps.See question
In 2007, I was in a Toyota corolla that accelerated and could not brake. We hit the center divider in the freeway, did a several turns around and came to a stop after hitting a tree. I was transfer in an ambulance to ER for severe neck and back pa...
The date to opt out of the "economic loss" class passed in May of 2013. Its odd you received a check without filing a claim form, since the settlement calls for payments based on timely filed claims. The good news is the settlement does not involve claims for personal injury or property damage to your car, only diminution in the "economic value" of you Toyota. You can find out more at www.toyotaelsettlement.com. I suggest that you speak to a lawyers handling these personal injury claims as soon as possible. In California, John Gomez is one such lawyer. He is handling some of the more high-profile injury cases, including the case of the California highway patrolman who died with his family, which settled for $10mm.See question
The judge I want to file against is Mark Fuller as he seems to sentence women to more time then men.
Forget about suing. If you have a legitimate complaint about a judge, there are several credible sites where you can lodge your complaint for all to see. If you believe it's serious enough, you can lodge a complaint with the state ethics/disciplinary board.See question

I work at a bar & many times I am scheduled from 4-close, but if the bar is slow I'm not allowed to clock in until it picks up. Sometimes this is at like 8pm, so basically I'm wasting loads of time. They won't allow me to just go home and call whe...
It's likely not legal, unless you've agreed to serve as an independent contractor. Federal provides a stringent remedy for you for the unpaid wagesSee question
