Round two: fired

The leader of the AH:Q backers' class-action claim against Indiegogo has just informed me that their joint demand for arbitration has been sent off to both the arbitrator and Indiegogo's VP/General Counsel. As per their recent research, they have added a claim of tortious interference by Indiegogo in the separate agreement between the campaign backers and Arkhaven.

If you are a backer of the AH:Q campaign on Indiegogo but are not one of the 195 class-action claimants - please don't even THINK about asking if you are one of them, as if you have to ask, then you are not a part of it - you can still file your own demand for arbitration and the lawyers handling the class action have prepared a package that will help you do so. Note that it will cost $250 to file the claim, but that plus the cost of sending two registered mailings will be the full extent of your expenses, as stated in the Indiegogo Terms of Use.

If you are interested in filing your own demand, but have not already contacted me about doing so, please feel free to email me and I will pass your email on to the relevant parties.

Ah, it's now 195, the more the merrier.

Tortious interference, yes, absolutely.

It's even more exclusive than the VFM.

What is the potential benefit one could receive from filing that $250 claim?

I'm kinda surprised that this hasn't made news anywhere. Is Indiegogo keeping the lid on it or something?

Part of the arbitration is confidentiality.

Glory, self-satisfaction, and the lamentations of your enemies.

Is there even such a thing as an impartial, SJW free hearing in California?

At this point, bouncing is insufficient.

Make the rubble twerk.

FWIW, Valiant Comics is doing its part to ensure the great success of Alt-Hero.

"What is the potential benefit one could receive from filing that $250 claim?"

Chipotle and Uber are a pretty good example. They got some class actions kicked out, so the lawyers got thousands of people individually seeking arbitration. That requires the companies to post a $1500 filing fee and then pay the hourly rate of the arbitrator ($400 - $1500). Then they have to pay their own lawyers too. The plaintiffs lawyers there basically made it a legal denial of service attack. "Oh, you won't agree to a class action? Here's a thousand arbitrations at $200,000 each."
