The company that ran the train apologized, now there is an 11milion dollar lawsuit. Lesson? Why apologize?

Allegations they say 2 of the women lost their jobs based on what was said on Twitter? So sue the train company, not the company that fired them based on a twitter tweet.

He said the company was sold on Sept. 15 and "the new owner is honored to continue to improve and build upon the Napa Valley Wine Train experience."
I wonder how that would affect the case if at all.





I also found it interesting that 11 ladies are suing for exactly $11 million.

I seem to recall a speech about wanting to be judged by the content of their character.

This is a lotto play no doubt

The article says they routinely kick people off the train for being rowdy, but most of them are not African American. It would be interesting to find out how those people were treated, was the police called on them, were they scolded and made to walk through the train cars while being escorted off, made to stand around for 20 mins waiting for the police, etc. It really seems like a he said/she said type of situation and it will be interesting to find out the actual facts.

I must've missed the memo that said black people are the only ones who get lawsuit-happy.

Ever hear a lawsuit-happy white person claim racial discrimination?

Nothing makes up for a minor inconvenience like a million dollars. How about don't act like a bunch of fools and you could stay on the train?
