    Samuel Clemens rather than declare bankruptcy paid back all of his debts an even paid back welfare to the gov't too if I'm not mistaken.

    The BIG question is would she have sued if she hadn't been doing something "immoral". Cheating is not illegal after all, but the big issue of settlement will likely hinge on whether or not a jury feels she wouldn't have sued if she hadn't been "misbehaving" in the first place.

    As far as maintaining her privacy, it looks 100% crystal clear that Rogers failed to uphold both their own privacy policy and her rights under PIPEDA.

    Not sure what the outcome of that will be.
    Marriage is a legally binding contract.
    Cheating in a marriage is technically illegal. It falls under breach of contract. It's not criminal ,but it's not legal either.

    ^ do you not see that's not the point here, though?

    I'm not condoning her behavior ... but do you think that even though she has done something immoral that she has lost her other rights? That the cell phone company is somehow no longer obligated to their own policies, and those of the government?

    Do people have trouble separating these issues from each other?

    Oh yeah.. I just didn't really want to go there,, I am Canadian eh? and have dealt with Rogers and Bell enough that it's amazing I can still walk straight.

    Bell and Rogers do what they want. They are by far the most annoying aspect of being an Ontario resident. They are rude and obnoxious. They are bullies who have a monopoly and they know it.
    I hope she wins just to see Rogers lose its precious money.
    I do not condone her actions.. but let he who has no sin cast the first stone kind of thing..

    I was just being a fusspot and pointing out the legalities of marriage. Sorry

    Is it common for this company to send an itemized "global" bill to all homes? If so, then I see nothing wrong with this. The company didn't ruin her life, her very own actions did.

    Just food for thought. But, how do you know someone is married at all except the last names lending to it? I live in the same house as my parents, use the same companies for my phone, insurance, etc. They have never once attempted to lump my bills together with my parents just because "We're family."

    Just like teachers shouldn't take it upon themselves to drop students out of their classes in college, so too should phone companies not ASSUME they want their bills lumped together. If they had phoned the woman attempting to find out if she wanted the bills combined, and the man answered and found out that way, I would say she has no argument. But she does have a legit argument.

    I think cheating is one of the most disgusting, morally wrong things someone can do in a relationship.. but that doesn't change the fact that the phone company has no business assuming they want anything shared. What if they had been seperated? I'd be pissed if I couldn't get to my bills without talking to my crappy husband I'm seperated from.. I can only imagine the god-awful arguments and potential back-stabbing things that could happen..

    Anyways. She's a crooked sonofaslut, but she has a legit complaint. It's important to note that just because she COULD have gotten caught at some other time in her life.. you can't use arguments like that in court. If it weren't for the billing company assuming, she wouldn't have been caught that way. You have to take the clients as they are. You can't say, "Well, I know I caused him to flip out, but he could have done that at ANY time!" The law doesn't work like that.

    If she wins the case, would any of the lovely females on this forum like to get hitched to an adulterous, extremely young and possibly sexy male? The effort will bring profit, I promise you that.

    I'm willing to go 50/50. You bring your half and I'll bring mine.

    This will not end well...
    But it will at least be poetic, I suppose...

    Hmm... But what if it does end well?
    Then I suppose it will be a different sort of poetry, a preferable sort...
    A sort I could become accustomed to...

    YA rogers is a complete pain in the ass, They have a lot of privacy issues. I even had to put a verbal password on my account cause someone was trying to access it. and every time I call, they don't even bother asking me for my password, they just ask for general information that anyone that knows me would know. and then I can do what ever I want with my account.

    Their employees are IDIOTS.

    if the contract is under HER NAME, then it should legally mean it is hers, and he has nothing to do with it.

    she is also an idiot for having an affair.

    If they sent the bill to her house, in the case that she has assigned her house as place of delivery, then it is, indeed, her fault and not the companies.
