CCD Founder Oliver Hall Joins the Ralph Nader Radio Hour
CCD Founder Oliver Hall appears on the latest episode of the Ralph Nader Radio Hour to discuss how ordinary citizens can leverage an underused and often forgotten forum in our civic life -- small claims courts.
In this episode we take a break from electoral reform to explore another aspect of democracy -- the notion, as Ralph often says (borrowing from Cicero), that freedom is participation in power.
Join this fascinating discussion to learn step-by-step how anyone can obtain redress for unlawful business practices and corporate abuses of power by pursuing actions in small claims courts.
The process is simple, easy, inexpensive and you don't need a lawyer.
The best part: if your claim has merit, you can obtain -- and collect -- money judgments ranging from $2,500 to $25,000, depending on the jurisdictional limit in your state's small claims court.
The episode also features an interview with William Kleinnecht, author of “States of Neglect: How Red-State Leaders Have Failed Their Citizens and Undermined America”.
