EEOC- on this one?) In the State of Florida, the Department of Business and Professional Regulation is reticent to investigate these cases, for some reason. Also, many law firms believe these employees were involved in victimizing others with the Pearlman-Defrawy scam, so they don't want to represent them. I racked my brains to come up with a solution for these employee-victims and think I have a solution for both classes. Here is my plan: I am encouraging victims to file claims in small claims court at a particular location. In the case of TCT, if you are the first to file a claim as an employee or a customer, you would contact me and provide the courthouse and date of your hearing. I will monitor the date and time so I can get others scheduled for the same date. I will contact the court and explain that there are many litigants with basically the same case. Louis J. Pearlman and TCT should both be named in the complaint, as well as ALL of the franchise owners for your respective location. I would need you to fax or scan your complaint to me because it will be a means of categorizing the claims. I would then notify the court of the similar cases on their docket and request that all the victims be heard on the same day, as they are essentially the same complaint. It would make sense that the courts would be more than happy to accomodate and clear their caseloads, especially when the complaints are essentially the same. It also demonstrates to the court the magnitude of the problem in their jurisdiction. If you know others who want their money back, or their unpaid wages, you should encourage them to file their claims and advise me likewise. This creates a de facto class action and I call this innovation "the People's Class Action." Attorneys are often not needed. In fact, in many states, attorneys are precluded from this process. I think it should catch on.
