2011 -$5 Million Lawsuit againt Patch.com Parent Company AOL - Class Action Forming
In a 47 page complaint filed in the UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT for the DISTRICT OF MASSACHUSETTS a woman who used AOL for years and was very careful to delete "cookies" and opt out of other features that could track her online habits has filed a $5 Million lawsuit against Patch.com parent company AOL (now controlled by Arianna Huffington and Huffington Post Media Group).
The suit alleges that Patch.com parent company AOL, conspired with other companies to unknowingly "track her every move" online and off. The suit arose from an incident where the woman had purchased chair cushions and used the computer checkout swiping her credit card and store loyalty card. She then checked her email when she got home and found she had received an email ad for the exact same cushions.
The 259 point complaint outlines exactly how Patch.com parent company AOL circumvented her browser preferences to track her via Adobe Flash Local Stored Objects (LSOs).

Patch did this to me. I just need to prove it. My email has been hi jacked. The stories they wrote were politically motivated and paid off to defame me. The manipulated google to page rank.
