Jesse, it appears you may not understand the economics of the court process. A lawsuit in this instance is hardly a practical idea. You should get out more.
I did have a very nice chat about the requirement changes with the departure employees last September. Those I spoke with agreed it made sense and had made their job much easier from a customer relation stadpoint. I haven't heard of anyone having any difficulties since the rule change; of course, that doesn't mean there haven't been any.
