Posted by IS THIS FORUM FOR TOX.TORT CLASS ACTION DISCUSSION ONLY? on 6/26/04
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?
