How to use redress in a sentence?

  1. Charles Adams:

    There is certainly the potential for harm to the integrity of the games but that risk already exists in a wholly unregulated shadow economy that exploits gamblers with usurious interest rates and robs them of any vehicle to seek redress if they are ripped off, most importantly, the current situation is a significant funding resource for organized crime. That ends with legalization.

  2. Abraham Lincoln:
