And this week, B.C. Supreme Court Justice John Savage ruled there were
sufficient grounds to certify a class-action for winners denied
because they were in the self-exclusion program.
I suppose there must be some legal reason why the suit was OKed, but it seems
stupid. They agreed not to collect: they didn't collect.
Well, all certifying for class action means is that even if it *is* stupid,
we may as well litigate it once for everybody and get it over with.
There's probably more legal issues under the covers - for instance, whether
there was any way to *leave* the program once you had signed up for it.
