Informational sheet on Class Action Law Suit, Burke O’Neil, USA
Originally sent from email@example.com
For attention of All Active Duty, Reservists, Military, Vets, Spouses, Children of, or Citizens who have been impacted by US military abuse.
The law firm of Burke Oâ€™Neil is developing a class action lawsuit against the military.
The lawsuit seeks to reform the culture that permits constant assaults and sexual abuse/harassment.
At present, the team working on the suit seeks to interview anyone who has suffered from sexual abuse of any sort while connected to the military by service, marriage, or otherwise. Anyone with those experiences is invited to join the class action. The team wants as many participants as possible.
The Burke Oâ€™Neil firm is developing the case on a contingency basis, which means that it will pay for all the costs associated with the lawsuit. Costs and attorneys fees would be collected if a monetary judgment is won from a jury.
This type of lawsuit will take several years and may not succeed, but bringing a lawsuit will help reform military culture.
Anyone interested in participating in the lawsuit or who has helpful information should contact lead investigator Barbara Dalton at firstname.lastname@example.org. Investigators will travel to meet with witnesses and interview20them.
