And this is the reason the Repubs are all over tort reform. What kind of asshole do you have to be to file a claim like this?

“A class action lawsuit entitled Chavez v. Netflix, Inc. was filed in San Francisco Superior Court (case number CGC-04-434884) on September 23, 2004. The lawsuit alleges that Netflix failed to provide “unlimited” DVD rentals and “one day delivery” as promised in its marketing materials. Netflix has denied any wrongdoing or liability. The parties have reached a settlement that they believe is in the best interests of the company and its subscribers.”

Lawsuits are intended for recourse in a situation where another party has seriously injured or detrimentally affected your life. Not when a company fails on the “one day delivery” ad copy. If it bugs you that much, cancel your freakin’ membership.

Doing his part to ensure corporate power only gets stronger. Thanks Frank Chavez!
