Class action lawsuit coming soon...

And, I'm not talking about Apple this time.

I enjoyed this story today about Berkeley Law School accidentally sending acceptance letters to everyone who applied - about 7,000 applicants versus the 800-850 who usually get in. Oops. That's 6,150 budding lawyers chomping at the bit.

Of course, it's not a technology story per se, any more than the one about the bank who were running their new mass mailing software only to see it send letters to 2,000 of it's wealthiest customers with the left-over-from-testing salutation "Dear Rich Bastard".
