PublishAmerica class action lawsuit

A class action lawsuit has been filed in Maryland United States District Court against PublishAmerica LLLP. The action was initiated by Darla Yoos, Edwin Mccall and Kerri Levine, on behalf of themselves and others similarly situated. The lawsuit was filed on June 8, 2012. Hagens Berman law firm is representing the plaintiffs. The attorneys are considered the most succesful class action attorneys in the United States and they have handled many high profile cases including the tobacco industry, Exxon Mobil, Enron and JP Morgan Chase. The Bogus Barrister has obtained a copy of the complaint and we will be publishing it shortly in an updated post. Should there be a monetary award, every PublishAmerica author, would be entitled to a share.

    I notice that Writer Beware and their folowers are patting themselves on the back boasting that they were "the first" to report on this. Your announcment was published at least 24 hours before theirs. The thread on AW proves, they got their information from you!

    Yes it is a shame that the Bogus Barrister wasn't cited as the source where they all first heard about this lawsuit. You published this news actually 2 days before Writer Beware and Victoria Stauss did. But you know, they hate anybody who steals their thunder.

  4. I can personally vouch for the Bogus Barrister blog being the first to report on the class action lawsuit. Where do you think they got the inside information? I have known that a class action was brewing since 2010 but remained skeptical. I have never been so glad to eat my words. These are well respected top notch attorneys who are fighting for these authors. PA cannot match them. I know much more about this lawsuit that I cannot make public at this time but I hear PA's death knell. It's music to my ears!
