Houston Astros Earn History

Congress Prevents Consumers from Suing Companies Like Equifax

The Senate voted Tuesday night to eradicate a contentious rule that would have allowed Americans to file class-action suits against banks instead of being coerced in many cases into private arbitration.

No Democrats or independents favored the move. All but two Republicans — John Kennedy of Louisiana and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina — voted to revoke the rule.

George Slover, senior policy counsel for Consumers Union, declared the vote “means that big financial companies can lock the courthouse doors and prevent consumers who’ve been mistreated from joining together to seek the relief they deserve under the law.”

North Texas Warrior Golf Association Fundraiser

The Nations Law Firm is proud to announce the successful outcome of a charitable event which we were fortunate enough to sponsor.  The 7th Annual North Texas Warrior Golf Tournament took place in Southlake, Texas all day today.  This is the group’s only fundraiser and essentially funds their entire yearly operating budget.  The North Texas Warrior Golf Association works with wounded veterans throughout the year, providing them with playing opportunities and golfing equipment, all as a means to assist with their rehab and their successful reintegration into civilian life.

One of our attorneys, Rachel Rose, was on site at the event and met with veterans and their families to answer questions about the Anti-Terrorism Act lawsuits which our firm is handling.  War veterans who were injured in Iraq or Afghanistan may be eligible for compensation through this lawsuit.  Their families may also have a claim.

Not only did Ms. Rose meet with people at the event, she was also on the air with Major Andrew White, on his popular radio show, Kilroy’s Conversation,  A Voice for Veterans and First Responders.
