Lawsuits Unfairly Targeting Minorities
California frequently brings us pictures of how greedy trial lawyers create new avenues to litigation and abuses of the system. The recent story from Fox and Hounds Daily demonstrates the broken system, yet again.
Minority communities and small businesses owned by minorities have fallen prey to the latest legal ploy. Lawyers target these areas with hopes of easy settlements because of the barriers such as language and familiarity with the court system – two things that frequently lead to some “quick cash” for lawyers drumming up lawsuits.
James Su, president of EDI Media, explains how “minority-owned businesses are seen as easy targets, where a few thousand bucks can be made with little hassle.”
Minority businesses play an increasingly important role in job creation. These businesses need an environment where economic growth and new hiring is common place, instead of abusive lawsuits and expensive settlements.
If you’re spending Columbus Day on holiday from work, why don’t you support your local minority business today? It sure would be a nice alternative to a lawsuit.
