          December 24, 2008

          To sue or not to sue? That is the question for today’s guests. If you’ve ever felt violated, wronged or scammed, it’s time to learn how to fight for your rights!

           

          Airport Assault?

          Robin says she was blindsided by officers in an airport when she mistakenly went through security with a bottle of contact solution. She says she was beaten so badly, she thought she might die. See her ordeal caught on tape, and find out what she’s doing about it. Travel correspondent Peter Greenberg and consumer advocate Ralph Nader join the discussion.   

           

          “There were two [officers] holding me down while he smashed my head into a table.”

           


          Travel Nightmares

          Bra Lawsuit

          Katerina is a mother of four who designed a unique brassier that she believed would help finance her children’s education. She says lingerie powerhouse Victoria’s Secret stole her design, and she’s not going to take it! 

           

          “That bra was to buy me time and get me financially set so I could be with my kids.” 

           


          Lottery Scam?

          Have you ever purchased a scratch-off lottery ticket? How would you feel if you found out there was absolutely no chance of you winning the grand prize? Scott is a self-described “numbers junkie” whose recent discovery about the Virginia State Lottery has him steaming mad.
