Former Disney Workers Suing Over H-1B Violations

...Mr. Perrero discovered that despite his high performance ratings, he and most of the other 250 tech workers Disney dismissed would not be rehired for at least a year, and probably never.
Now he and Dena Moore, another American laid off by Disney at that time, have filed lawsuits in federal court in Tampa, Fla., against Disney and two global consulting companies, HCL and Cognizant, which brought in foreign workers who replaced them. They claim the companies colluded to break the law by using temporary H-1B visas to bring in immigrant workers, knowing that Americans would be displaced.

I thought it fit in well with my discussion of Sold Out: How High-Tech Billionaires & Bipartisan Beltway Crapweasels Are Screwing America's Best & Brightest Workers.  Nothing will happen of course - Oh, Disney will kick up a few dollars and maybe a job or two, HCL and Cognizant will be "investigated" and be fined a token sum.  No one will admit any wrong doing and in 11 months, after the elections Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Apple et. al. will get their huge increase in H-1B visa quotas.
