    Attorney General of Texas, Ken Paxton, filed a whopper of a lawsuit against Pfizer. You will need your thinking caps for it. The petition can be found here. You will likely remember the constant drumbeat that the Pfizer mRNA shots were "95% effective." The filing starts, "The COVID-19 vaccines are the miracle that wasn't."1. More Americans died in 2021 with the vaccine available than in 2020—with the vaccine available and the majority of Americans taking Pfizer's.2. By the end of 2021, in some places, a greater percentage of the vaccinated were dying from COVID-19 than the unvaccinated. As per the...

    When hired by MSNBC as a legal analyst Andrew Weissmann, host Ari Melber explained that Weissmann is a “legend” while others heralded his insider perspective on cases. While many disagreed, Weissmann now has the inside scoop on a major defamation lawsuit in Washington, D.C. He is also the defendant. The controversial former aide to Special Counsel Robert Mueller (and NYU law professor) is being sued after declaring that attorney Stefan Passantino coached former Trump aide Cassidy Hutchinson to lie before Congress.

    (Reuters) - Pfizer has been sued by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, who on Thursday accused the drugmaker of misrepresenting the efficacy of its widely-used COVID-19 vaccine. In a complaint filed in a Lubbock County state court, Paxton said it was misleading for Pfizer to claim its vaccine was 95% effective because it offered a "relative risk reduction" for people to who took it Paxton said the claim was based on only two months of clinical trial data, and vaccine recipients' "absolute risk reduction" showed that the vaccine was just 0.85% effective. He also said the pandemic got worse even...

    Ultimately, I blame Joe Biden for these kinds of things happening. That, of course, means that I am blaming Barack Obama by extension. I've been rather consistent with my blame assignment since January 2009. Late '70s and early '80s pop chart fixtures Daryl Hall and John Oates will not be spending the holidays with each other. The two are having a bit of a spat and it's getting testy in a legal way. Variety: Hall & Oates are embroiled in a confidential legal battle that has led to Daryl Hall getting a restraining order against his former music partner John...

A class-action lawsuit filed on Tuesday alleges that UnitedHealthcare used an artificial intelligence algorithm to wrongfully deny coverage under Medicare Advantage health policies. The insurer made health-care determinations using its nH Predict algorithm, overrode physician recommendations, and denied elderly patients’ claims for stays in extended-care facilities, according to the lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota. The plaintiffs also alleged the technology lets the company “aggressively deny coverage, because they know they will not be held accountable for...
