Chum’s in the water, folks. And here come the sharks.
Since we first learned that ExamSoft ruined the otherwise relaxing experience of taking the bar exam, we’ve anticipated lawsuits. You can’t piss off all the would-be lawyers you can get your hands on and expect to come through un-served. It is known.
One person on Twitter put it this way: “Numerosity, commonality, typicality, adequacy: Pretty sure all harmed #barexam takers could form a class action against @ExamSoft.”
This law firm is happy to get that ball rolling…
Chimicles & Tikellis appears to be a Pennsylvania-based plaintiffs’ firm. A couple of ExamSoft-affected readers sent us this notice that is up on the firm’s website:
ExamSoft July 2014 Bar Exam Technical Issues – Class Action Investigation
Chimicles & Tikellis is investigating a potential class action lawsuit on behalf of individuals who recently took the bar exam and paid additional fees to use the ExamSoft software during the July 2014 exam. It has been alleged that during the July 2014 bar exam, ExamSoft experienced massive and widespread technical difficulties that prevented ExamSoft users from uploading their completed bar exams from the ExamSoft software to the state bar examiner servers. It has been further alleged that ExamSoft has not offered refunds to users who experienced technical issues when uploading their exams.
If you used the ExamSoft software during the July 2014 bar exam and experienced technical issues when uploading your exam, please use the “Email us about this Case” button to contact the attorneys below.
So it begins.
I don’t want to say “I told you so.” I want to scream “I told you so” as I run through ExamSoft’s offices pointing my fingers at various employees.
As one ATL commenter suggested, I think I will just end all of my posts this month with:
DONT FORGET EXAM SOFT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
/s Elie and the rest of the ATL Gang
This is going to get sooo much worse for them before it gets better.
