Class action suit against RIM for latest outage...
 
and so the fun begins...

RIM outage prompts class action suit - Montreal - CBC News

Always someone somewhere trying to profit from someone else's woes...

Here's the story - from CBC news...

"A Montreal law firm is launching a class action lawsuit against Research in Motion Ltd. on behalf of individuals who lost the use of their BlackBerry devices during a service outage earlier this month.

Consumer Law Group Inc. filed a proposal with the Quebec Superior Court to pursue a suit against the company, which saw a major outage across its global network that saw many customers lose access to their data and BlackBerry messenging services between October 11 and 14.

After the multiple-day outage, the company said it would be looking at compensation for affected customers. The company soon offered free apps as a thank you to its customers.

But the suit alleges that the company has not gone far enough to rectify the damage caused. Among the demands are that RIM work with "wireless service providers to refund their customers and to take full responsibility for these damages."

A judge must certify the suit as a legitimate class action before it can proceed.

When asked for comment, a spokesperson for RIM says the company does not typically comment on litigation. The law firm, however, is urging any BlackBerry users who were affected by the outage to contact them."

Only the lawyers will profit. What a joke. I was quite happy that the darn thing was down. I actually got real work done.

Yep. We have become the planet of "what's in it for me and how do I get it with the least possible effort?"
