    Donald Trump was found liable of sexual abuse and defamation yesterday in a civil case brought against him by columnist E. Jean Carroll. The former president has been ordered to pay roughly $5m in compensatory and punitive damages. Trump has indicated he will appeal the verdict.As information collected in the Just Security Litigation Tracker and expanded on by Statista's Martin Armstrong shows, when looking at cases brought over the last couple of years, this is the second verdict going against Trump and his organizations or affiliates.In January, the Trump Organization was sentenced to pay $1.6 million in fines for a...

    Efforts to overturn vaccine mandates for both hospital patients and health care workers appear to be gaining momentum across the United States. In what is seen as a major victory for transplant patients who did not take the COVID vaccine, one of the largest transplant centers in the United States reversed its policy to require the jab in order to be eligible for an organ transplant. The University of Michigan (UM) announced its new policy on May 4 just before court proceedings were about to get underway in a lawsuit filed against it for declaring patients ineligible for an organ...
  • Here's how progessive lawyers are using public nuisance lawsuits to outlaw guns

    EXCLUSIVE - A consumer protection group is warning Republican governors against attempts by left-leaning lawyers to use public nuisance lawsuits as a backdoor way to outlaw guns. The Alliance For Consumers (AFC), a nonprofit organization aimed at "ensuring consumer protection efforts, class action lawsuits, and attorney general enforcement actions benefit consumers," sent a letter to all GOP governors Friday saying that since the many state legislatures have recently flipped to a Republican majority, they should be on the lookout for progressive activists attacking gun rights through these legal actions. "With victories through the legislative process becoming harder to achieve, the...
  • Pennsylvania legislators cut a bipartisan deal built on friendship. Will the bond survive?

    The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette ^ | January 15, 2023 | The Washington Post
    HARRISBURG — When Republican state legislator Jim Gregory nominated his Democratic friend and colleague Mark Rozzi to be speaker of the Pennsylvania House this month, the move stunned close political observers and seemed to offer new hope for bipartisanship. As with the nation, politics in this critical swing state, the country’s fifth-most populous, have become bitterly divided in recent years along ideological, geographical and racial lines. Donald Trump won the state in 2016, and Joe Biden took it back in 2020. False claims over the legitimacy of the 2020 contest became prominent Pennsylvania GOP rallying cries in 2022 and reinforced...

    Former President Donald Trump has been served with a wrongful death lawsuit by the estate of a US Capitol Police officer who died the day after the Jan. 6 riots. The suit alleges that Trump incited his supporters to commit violence on that day, which led to an assault on Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick by two men. Sicknick, 42, died on January 7 after having two strokes. Washington DC’s chief medical examiner said in April 2021 that the officer died of natural causes brought on by his illness. The lawsuit was filed by Sicknick’s longtime partner, Sandra Garza. It...

    A couple are locked in a battle with a fitness club chain after a £30,000 Rolex watch was stolen from a locker room. Lee Briggs visited the David Lloyd health club in Kings Hill on June 6 this year to play tennis with his business partner. He entered the locker room to get changed and stashed his Rolex in his shoe before putting it in a locker - securing it with a padlock bought from the club. He was gone for 30 minutes but during that time the locker was broken into and the watch stolen. Mr Briggs, 40, says...
  • After 5 Red States Passed ‘Voter Suppression’ Bills, Voting Turnout Boomed

    The Daily Signal ^ | September 9, 2022 | Fred Lucas
    A left-leaning New York think tank sounded a familiar warning about Arizona’s “voter suppression bills” being “dangerously close to becoming law.” The Brennan Center for Justice added in a press release that Arizona was “taking center stage in the relent­less effort to rein in voter parti­cip­a­tion in the name of ‘elec­tion secur­ity.’” Pending bills, the think tank claimed, were “aimed at making voting by mail harder.” That was in April 2021, before Arizona passed several reform measures that state legislators said they crafted to ensure secure and honest elections. Little more than a year later, in August 2022, Arizona notched...

The women filed separate lawsuits Wednesday in Los Angeles County Superior Court alleging Foreman began grooming them when they were just 8 and 9 years old and later raped them at age 15 and 16. Foreman, 73, has denied the allegations and called them an extortion attempt in a statement to The Post.

    A Multnomah County jury has slapped Walmart with $4.4 million in damages after a Portland area man said in a lawsuit that a theft prevention employee racially profiled him for “shopping while Black” and tried to have him ejected for bogus reasons. Michael Mangum said he felt “disrespected and embarrassed” after a worker at the Wood Village Walmart began watching him, then summoned police and falsely claimed Mangum had threatened to smack him in the face. “When he said he’s going to call the police, I couldn’t believe it, because I hadn’t done anything,” Mangum, now 61, told The Oregonian/OregonLive...
  • Skittles manufacturer is sued over claims candies contain poisonous colorant titanium dioxide which can damage vital organs and DNA

    Skittles manufacturer Mars Inc. has been sued by a California woman who claims a colorant used in the candies is dangerous and puts people at risk of damage to their brains and DNA. In a proposed class action filed on Thursday in the Oakland, California federal court, Jenile Thames accused Mars of endangering unsuspecting Skittles eaters by using 'heightened levels' of titanium dioxide, or TiO2, as a food additive. The lawsuit highlighted how titanium dioxide will be banned in the European Union next month after a food safety regulator there deemed it unsafe because of 'genotoxicity,' or the ability to...

    A couple in the north Indian state of Uttarakhand are suing their only son and his wife for not giving them a grandchild after six years of marriage. Sanjeev and Sadhana Prasad, 61 and 57, say they used up their savings raising their son, paying for his pilot's training as well as a lavish wedding. They are demanding compensation worth nearly $650,000 (£525,000) if no grandchild is born within a year. Their son and his wife do not appear to have commented. The highly unusual lawsuit was filed on grounds of "mental harassment".

Nationwide, there are at least 29 pending lawsuits challenging law enforcement use of force during the 2020 protests, according to a search of the University of Michigan’s Civil Rights Litigation Clearinghouse....

    OTTAWA—The federal government says the RCMP is working with financial institutions to “unfreeze” bank accounts locked by emergency orders that targeted people who organized, participated in, or donated to the so-called Freedom Convoy blockades. Isabelle Jacques, assistant deputy minister of finance, told a Commons standing committee Tuesday that the RCMP began “sharing information” — related to the end of “unlawful” blockades — with banks and financial institutions as of Monday that should lead to affected accounts being “unfrozen.”

    Covid-19-related lawsuits against employers accelerated early in 2021 and maintained a steady pace throughout the year, but some new pain points for employers emerged in the fourth quarter that could foreshadow challenges on the horizon. According to law firm Fisher Phillips LLP's Covid-19 litigation tracker, there were at least 2,878 Covid-19-related employment lawsuits filed in 2021. That represented a significant jump over the 1,341 cases filed in 2020 when the pandemic was still in its earliest stages. The pace of lawsuits didn't significantly increase after it picked up steam in early 2021 — it hovered around 240 cases per quarter...

    Republican Senator Rogers filed the bill in order to attempt to hold mandating employers liable “for any health complications associated with any required medical products or procedures.”The bill aims to “protect employees who suffer any adverse reactions, injury, disability, loss of wages, pain and suffering or medical expenses correlating to the employer mandate. Furthermore, if any injuries arise within 120 days after receiving an employee mandated medical product or procedure, it would be presumed that the product or procedure is the cause.”
