    Re: Welcome to the Class Actions Chatboard


    Dear Toxlaw Freinds,

    This Class Action forum is nice! However, I wonder if it is intended
    to be only about Toxic Tort Class Actions. There are many other types of
    Class Actions other than Toxic Tort actions. I filed one recently
    against the State of Louisiana for return of millions of dollars that I
    think have been collected illegally when Louisiana sheriffs make a
    defendant pay money to the state just to bond out of jail. Of course,
    that is in additon to the bond posted by the defendant. Also, the state
    gets a percentage of the money paid a bailbondsman for a bailbond; and
    this money is divvided up among the judges who set the amount of the
    bailbond (so that the higher that the bonds are set, the more money the
    judges get), the D.A., the Public Defender and the sheriff. I say that
    that Tax on the Bill of Rights is unconstitutional, and that all the
    money that has been collected according to that unconstitional Louisiana
    law has to be refunded. What do you think about all of this?
