The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing.

Sex Predator VS Credit Card Company

I've already detailed the deviant behaviors of James Colliton, here. But to summarize it, he's a convicted sexual predator who spent only 19 months in jail after fleeing charges that he sexually abused two young teenage girls, after 'buying' them from their mother. Oh, and he was a high profile hot shot lawyer at the time too. After the charges were filed against him, he ran off to Canada. Not being the smartest guy- he used his credit cards to check into a nice hotel. He has a defense for this ""You're not a fugitive if you sign into a major chain hotel using your driver's license and your American Express card," he says." See.. I told you he wasn't the smartest thing.

Anyway, AE gave police information that he'd used his credit card in Canada, and that lead to his capture, and conviction.

Now, this sexual deviant is suing American Express, claiming that when they provided information to the police, they breached some rules.

A disgraced lawyer has sued American Express for $4 million for telling cops where he was hiding while on the run from charges that he had sex with two underage sisters.

James Colliton, once a $500,000-a-year tax lawyer at Cravath, Swaine & Moore, contends the credit card company breached its rules by telling authorities that he had used the card in February 2006 to pay for gas in Ontario, Canada.

"Is that why you pay fees to American Express - so they can spy on you?" Colliton said. "They're willing to sell you out."

Spy on you? I love how he makes it sound so morally wrong that they provided information to the police which lead to the capture of a sexual predator. I mean, I don't know about you- but I certainly don't like entertaining the idea that my credit card company (or any other company I do business with) would help a sexual predator by not turning information over to the police.
In his suit, filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, Colliton says Canadian authorities would never have "falsely arrested" or "unlawfully detained" him on immigration charges if American Express hadn't revealed when and where he had used his credit card.

"That's not why I gave them 20 years of fees and thousands of dollars in profits," he said. "They spied on me."

Colliton, 44, has sued Cravath, Swaine & Moore in federal court, claiming the firm owes him $950,000 in salary, bonuses and vacation pay. The registered sex offender also sued Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau and two assistant prosecutors.

"When people stop violating my rights, that's when I will stop filing lawsuits," he said.

When people stop violating HIS rights. Huh... amazing that HE thinks people shouldn't violate his rights (which I don't believe anyone is) but at the same time he's all for violating the rights, and in violating the bodies of two innocent sisters.
