If rallies and other things don’t work, then using the legal system seems to work. How sad that people and institutions have to be compelled to do what they promised to do. I have nothing but happiness in reading this story. This person took action to make the world a better place and now they have to recognize their failure to keep the promises they made.

Isn’t it great that you can’t avoid the responsibility of what you do? Eventually, someone will point it out and make you responsible for your legal commitments. I love it when people use the legal system to fix the injustices of the legal system.
