Over a year ago, I wrote this piece about how to go paperless. As a small aside in the post, I said:(I have been involved in some class action lawsuits regarding stock purchases made years ago, so I felt I should keep all my old brokerage statements.)  Class action lawsuits against companies are somewhat controversial. On the one hand, they do serve a valid purpose of holding companies accountable ...
