Class-action lawsuit v DNC Debbie Wasserman Schultz
WE FIGHT BACK: Nationwide Class-Action filed Against Democratic Party and Debbie Wasserman Schultz
There may be redress for Bernie’s campaign contributors, through a federal class action lawsuit in Miami, Florida by JamPAC.
Jared H. Beck, Esq of Beck & Lee Trial Lawyers discussed the class action complaint filed against the Democratic Party and Chairperson Debbie Wasserman Schultz in a video announcing the lawsuit.
There are essentially six legal claims we are asserting in this lawsuit on behalf of the composed class members. The first is a claim for fraud—against the DNC and Debbie Wasserman Schultz—based on the revelations from the recent Guccifer 2.0 documents purportedly taken from the DNC’s own computer network. The Guccifer 2.0 documents include internal memos in which the DNC broke legally binding neutrality agreements in the Democratic primaries by strategizing to make Hillary Clinton the nominee before a single vote was cast.

From the JamPAC website: Who We Are
Husband-and-wife attorneys Jared and Elizabeth Beck founded JamPAC in February 2016. JamPAC is the first and only truly progressive grassroots Super PAC. It is powered by ordinary citizens to serve the people, rather than billionaires and corporations. JamPAC is fueled by donations from individuals from all over the country. JamPAC aims to hold politicians accountable to the citizenry. Its goal is to restore the voice of the people to government.
Jared and Elizabeth also run their own law firm, Beck & Lee Trial Lawyers. Since its founding, the firm has recovered millions of dollars on behalf of injured victims, consumers, investors, and small businesses. They opened their firm in 2007, after both quit their lucrative six-figure jobs at large corporate law firms.
