Call The Police!

I’m Done with Westlaw

Wouldn’t you think that a company whose clients are mostly lawyers would deal with those clients in an ethical and legal manner?  Unfortunately, that’s not the case when it comes to Thomson Reuters – West, the company that owns and operates Westlaw, a company  providing computer-based legal research services.
