Class Action Suit Says Trash System is Illegal; Involves All County Residents; Hearing Set for Aug. 18

A class action law suit filed in behalf of all St. Louis County Residents on September 14, 2009 will have a hearing next Wednesday, August 18, 2010. The basis of the suit claims the establishment of trash districts within the county is illegal and creates a monopoly.

A spokesperson for Citizens in Opposition to Monopoly Trash Districts (COMTD) urges St. Louis County residents to attend this hearing on August 18. The location is the Missouri Court of Appeals, 815 Olive Blvd. in downtown St. Louis (Old Post Office) at 9:30 a.m., Division 5, Third Floor.

In law, a class action is a form of lawsuit in which a large group of people (county residents) collectively bring a claim to court and/or in which a class of defendants (St, Louis County) is being sued. Consumer organizations (COMTD) may bring claims on behalf of large groups of consumers (county residents). The law suit in question here involves all residents of St. Louis County as a group bringing a claim to the courts.

    The county continues to come up short on these issues and loose. Eventually, there will be no mmore appeals and the county will have to accept its bad decision. It will cost the tax payers more and more money, the consumer looses, the haulers have lost, the county will have to pay restitution, and no one come up ahead, except the attorneys.

    Dooley should loose his position as Executive over this issue alone. It will cost tax payers millions before ending.

    Why do we taxpayers continue to accept bad management and accept terrible use of our tax dollars.

    I hope we all answer that question in November.
    This madness has to end. At, least we need a new crazy leader to raise some hope.
