Editor: The IRB City Commission has fallen for one of the most blatant travesties of the American justice system, the class action suit. If the city was honestly affected, why now, two years later? Itís only because the judges have allowed the lawyers to file these claims without any burden of proof just based on being located on the Gulf of Mexico. This is just a money grab and the IRB City Councilís participation is both immoral and unconscionable. The only people who profit from these suits are the lawyers. The rest of us will suffer forever from higher prices at the pump as the oil companies just pass their additional costs on the consumers. If you donít believe that, look at the tobacco industry. Shame on every member of the IRB City Council for this decision.
