Does this seem wrong to you?

I’m back tracking thru the past year, so hang on for the journey.
I suppose the best place to start would be the weekend of Memorial Day 2011. The kids & I joined family & friends for a fun filled cook out. Scott joined us later on his Harley. He left before us, and showed up again a few minutes later. A dog had ran out in front of him so he layed the bike down to avoid the dog. He had road rash down one leg and arm. The bike suffered damage as well. His “burns” were painful and he was beyond miserable. He returned to work that Tuesday to find he and his entire Unit had been pulled for a “random” drug test. They were all carted to the clinic and back, then told not to return to work until they heard from them. A few days pass and stories are flying. Apparently the random wasn’t so random, there was a “target” list upper management was going thru. And so much more that I can’t say right now. The lab called to verify he had a prescription for a medication, said once they verified it with the pharmacy, they’d fax a clean report to his employer. We waited and waited. Then more chatter came in via co workers. Upper management was spreading the word they all had been fired for testing positive for K2. Hmmmm….there still is a HIPPA law, correct? June 7th, he gets a letter of termination. First, I must tell you, in the State of Indiana, K2 didn’t become illegal to posses or use until July 2011, this particular employer did not have a policy in place that covered ANYTHING beyond “illegal street drugs or illegal prescription drugs”. Well, he was denied unemployment benefits. At that point we hired an attorney. Not only did she win the unemployment appeals, but she uncovered so much more. At that point all the men signed an agreement for her to represent them in a very detailed lawsuit. The lawsuit, according to the attorney was to be filed first of September 2011. After they signed the contract, no one could ever get ahold of her. Then finally at the end of 2011 we were told it would be filed in January. This was a horrible horrible roller coaster ride of complete unprofessionalism and lost hope mixed with a dark dark cloud hanging over our lives. Again, we were told it would be filed in April. Before April was over we received a letter stating she did not have the ” time or energy ” to devote herself in “the manner to which this case deserves”, therefor she must withdraw her representation. However, she wishes then men “the best of luck” and reminds them there is a statue of limitations on a case like this. And now, well now we can’t get a decent Federal Court Attorney to return any calls. Well, one, and she wants an astronomical retainer fee. Did I mention, the attorney we had “highly suggested” the men NOT get jobs? Yes that’s right. We just bought our first house a year ago. My husband finally got a job, in NOVEMBER! Needless to say, the last year has been HELL! Anyone know a knock-em-out not scared of anything extremely better then great Civil Rights Litigation attorney, this case has the potential to be HUGE in so many scary ways!
