[Post in General approved by Spark] If you or your business was prevented from using Google AdWords/AdSense because you violated Goggle's "dangerous products or services policy" by selling knives or knife parts (or guns, gun parts, etc), you are being invited to join a class action lawsuit that is now pending in federal court in California. You or your business does not need to be based in California, it can be located anywhere in the United States. You or your business do not have to be a going concern or in business today, so long as you were back when they blocked you. So, if you have since closed down your business, that's okay, you can still be a member of the class and can be compensated if the lawsuit is won. To qualify, a person or company must have had its AdWords/AdSense account suspended or terminated by Google LLC between March 2014 and September 2017 based on the fact their websites advertised "any products that (i) were designed to injure an opponent in sport, self-defense or combat such as knives, crossbows and guns" in violation of Google's "dangerous products or services policy." No attorney fees or costs will be charged to join this federal class action lawsuit. Rather, plaintiff's counsel will be paid by court order on a contingent basis. If you are interested in learning more or in participating in the case you should directly contact William McGrane, Esq., who is acting as class action counsel in the pending lawsuit, by emailing him at [email protected]. Mr. McGrane's contact information and biography may be viewed at www.mcgranepc.com. Class action lawsuits are lawsuits in which a group of people "with the same or similar injuries caused by the same product or action sue the defendant as a group." The key is that people seek justice in class action lawsuits because they've been damaged, in this case by corporate misconduct such as discrimination. A class action is frequently used when a number of people have suffered the same or similar damage. Individually, the damage may have been relatively minor, to the point they might not have sought "legal redress" or cannot expect the cost of litigation to be affordable. Collectively, however, the value of the claims add up and suing as a class means consolidating attorneys, defendants, evidence, witnesses and most other aspects of the litigation. Class action lawsuits are virtually always done on a contingent basis, as is the case here, so that it is the attorneys who bear the costs, take the risks and assume the losses if not successful. In this case, the potential biggest benefit may not be direct financial gain for the class action members, which could still be thousands of dollars per violation, but rather that Google is forced to change their discriminatory policy to enable you to use their AdWords/AdSense products to advertise your wares. If you think you or your business could qualify, please contact Mr. McGran as soon as possible. Knife Rights is Rewriting Knife Law in America™ 29 Bills Enacted in 21 States in 8 Years!
