"Small claims flash mobs" sue corporate defendants

If she's successful in getting others to follow her example, Peters could inspire a whole new litigation strategy in the auto industry and other businesses. Working together but filing lawsuits independently, consumers could force companies to go mano a mano with individual plaintiffs in far-flung courtrooms nationwide.

Call it a small-claims flash mob.
These kinds of organized small claims actions cropping up against vehicle manufacturers could also conceivably target HOAs where HOA inmates are similarly outgunned by HOA corporations and their superior legal resources.

Well consumers in Texas won't have this option much longer. The Texas legislature has eliminated small claims court effective May 2013. So get with it while you can!!
