Talking I fought the OCL and WON!

Hello, I wanted to say that I fought a horrible OCL report against me and just won at trial. In fact the judge gave the report no weight. I would be happy to hear from anyone and offer encouragement. I was told it was an uphill battle to fight a report like this and this is false!! I can attest to this.

Flaws in methodology, bias, etc....

I would also love to file a class action lawsuit against the OCL for "malpractice"

Have to run, but happy to hear from anyone that were misrepresented by them.

No offense but you got lucky. You are the 10% that win against OCL. Your partner can appeal, get it in front of a another Judge and easily get it implemented.

I strongly disagree. I have posted to offer others like me some support and optimism- not for negativity.

I know nothing about the OCL firsthand, but I do have experience with uphill battles and beating the 'odds' in a few instances! Congratulations, as it's always good to hear that these victories DO occur. Gives others hope. The OCL from what little I do know, is far from perfect and a focused, fact based opposition can indeed overturn their expert analysis/opinions.

Class Action Lawsuits are rather tricky, but also not out of the question. Chances are, you may have to simply take great satisfaction with your personal "win" but it is worth exploring your options, if you believe you have some.

Who oversees the OCL? Is it the LSUC? If it is, they 'concern' themselves (if you want to call it that) with *misconduct,* but NOT negligence. Seems there's a pretty wide berth they give to Solicitors when it comes to negligence.

I haben't read anything in this thread, but the subject title reminds me of "I Fought the Law" is a song written by Sonny Curtis of The Crickets and became popularized by a cover by the Bobby Fuller Four, which went on to become a top-ten hit for the band in 1966 and was also recorded by The Clash in 1979. The Bobby Fuller Four version of this song was ranked No. 177 on the Rolling Stone list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time in 2004, and the same year was named one of the 500 "Songs that Shaped Rock" by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
