    You have to have a reason under law to win a case in court. Something being "unfair" from our perspective isn't enough - it need to be that they have broken a law. So your first step would be to try and figure out exactly what law you believe they broke and whether you can clearly prove it.

    There will always be some lawyer willing to take your money for a hopeless case so being able to find someone to profit from you isn't a good measure of the legitimacy of a complaint.

    Often times, things in life are unfair but we are as much responsible for it as anyone. It's our life and if we chose to go along with some crazy scheme then more fool us. But there's no law against making bad decisions.

    Dantoole I am familiar with your story from your introduction.

    Your lawsuit Idea will not change anything...... plus cost you a small fortune. However for penny's you could write a letter to your local Newspaper and describe the practices, folly's, lack of education, needless deaths because of the Blood Ban, shunning, the two witness rule re child abuse and how that pleasant person that's knocking on the door has probably already picked out someone's really nice home as their new residence after Armageddon.

    It's these types of human mistakes in their JW dogma that people will remember.

    My attorney charges $360/hr. In recent litigation that ended in an out of court settlement before it even went to depositions (let alone court) ran up over $8K in legal fees. If you're really seeking to make a big splash of it and end up in court then you're likely looking to spend at least $25K of your own cash (and probably much more) because no attorney will take that kind of case on a long-shot contingency of winning.

    Be thankful you are young and have discovered TTATT before you are old and have been used up by the WTS.

    Good luck!

    The greatest revenge is living a happy & successful life!

    Totally ADD— The latest direction is that Pub Cards are never destroyed. New Lite. This allows them to go after you if you begin to start trouble even years after exiting the cult.
