See how Microsystems Software fired an employee who went to the hospital for treatment of a work related injury. Even after paying over $140874.80 Mattel, Microsystems, and The Learning Company used a baseless libel claim to try to shut down this site. Now they demand an apology. See how Mattel, MSI, and TLC is now the subject of a $48,595,103.77 lawsuit because they tried to silence this website using a frivolous libel counterclaim.
