A class action is being brought against players from the Australian and English cricket teams.
The civil suit is being filed after the sides took turns capitulating, and failed to complete anywhere near the 25 days of cricket they were paid to provide.
There were only 50 sessions of cricket played during the 2015 Ashes out of a possible 75. With only a third of the scheduled overs bowled, everyone from advertisers to ground staff, even the general public, are suing the sides for loss of revenue, income and entertainment.
Both Cricket Australia and the ECB say that their hands are tied in the matter, unable to help their players given the disastrous lack of contests.
“Let’s face it,” a Cricket Australian spokesperson stated, “they’ve only completed a third of their job, and unless you’re a politician that’s just unacceptable.”
The players even received a barb from the commentary box with microphones managing to pick up another Shane Warne nugget, who exclaimed that he’s actually had relationships which have lasted longer than this series.
Two law firms in Canada have launched a $578 million class-action lawsuit against — saying they were doing so on behalf of “all Canadians” who have been affected by the hack that exposed millions of cheaters worldwide.
“They are outraged that AshleyMadison.com failed to protect its users’ information,” said attorney Ted Charney, who filed the suit last Thursday. “In many cases, the users paid an additional fee for the website to remove all of their user data — only to discover that the information was left intact and exposed.”
The data breach exposed some 39 million members.

Canadian law firms Charney Lawyers and Sutts, Strosberg, LLP on Thursday slapped Ashley Madison with a $578 million lawsuit on behalf of the website's Canadian users whose personal information was exposed in the recent hack.

As of now, the status of the class-action lawsuit has yet to certified by the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, an AP report published on ABC 30 revealed.
