    Mammoth Mags...Lawsuit???

    I just got a check for a few hundred from the Paul Story v. Mammoth settlement fund. I have some vague memory of some class action lawsuit but for the life of me can't remember what it was about. Anybody else get a check, anybody know details, can we still blame Rob Story

    So apparently this Story guy received a sales call from Mammoth and sued? Seems kinda weird.

    I mean, I get robo called like 3x a week and I don't get checks. What was the difference here?

    So some guy named Scott gets a sales call hutash gets a check for a few hundred? Sounds fair, I guess.

    Hey hutash, I think you need to find this guy and send him a thank you letter. Or you could roll the dice and send it back to Mammoth with a letter explaining that you're die hard mammoth fan and that you think this belongs to them and see if they reward you with a free season pass or something more valuable than a few Benjamins.

    Seems to say you needed to file a settlement claim to be part of the class though (paragraph 4 in the March 13 pdf doc). Did you?

    I vaguely recall getting one of those class action form letters. I honestly don't recall anything about it, or how I responded. I figured it was one of the usual sue AT&T type thing and get a check for $1.30, if that much.

    I wonder if Micheal Cohen was the lead attorney on this one?

    Damn, if got a few hundred for every improper robo call I get I'd be richer than Donald Trump. I need to find me some legal representation.

    I just got the check yesterday. $328. I called mammoth to ask about it when first got the notice earlier this year and they said to absolutely collect on it. I told them I thought the lawsuit was BS and I didnt want to take their money but they said if everyone who got the notice didn't collect, theyd be paying the $1m and change to Paul Story's law firm regardless.

    Shitty for mammoth but I won't complain about collecting checks. I'd sure like to tell Paul story he is a cunt though.. hope he gets a dirty look Everytime his pass gets scanned.

    Got $350. Pleasant surprise although not as good as the time I got a 4 figure check from the University of CA because a law student sued them for changing the graduate student fees mid stream in the degree. Now that was a nice surprise! Figures it was a law student!

    I read the headline here quickly and wondered why telemarkers were suing:

    Thanks, question answered. Most of it will go right back to Mammoth in the way of $9 beers though.

    Had a check show up yesterday.
    Do not remember signing up for anything either.
    The hill is like Vegas though.
    They eventually end up with all your money. We will be giving it back to them starting Monday morning.

    Well give the money to the Mammoth Corporation then, and write a letter to the California Public Utilities Commission saying you don't think a public resource like telephone poles (I guess you think each company even a startup should be allowed to put big stuff in your backyard) should have oversight (or the oversight should be toothless).
