Patients May be Pumped for a Lawsuit

Insulin issue

Individuals with Type 1 diabetes, beware.  A recall was just announced by the Food and Drug Administration concerning the Medtronic MiniMed 600 series insulin pumps.  Owners of this type of pump are at risk of receiving either more or less than the required insulin dosage.  The reason? The pumps are being used with missing or broken retainer rings, which are necessary units that lock the cartridges into place in the reservoir compartment.  If not locked into place, an incorrect level of insulin will be delivered.  Type 1 diabetes patients rely on their insulin pumps to survive.  If the pumps are not of sound construction, their lives may be in danger.       Read more

Drawing Their Line in the Sand

Beach front battle

The beach is one of the earth’s most mesmerizing and extraordinary gifts.  While some beaches are privately owned and shielded from public use, others require a fee to enjoy or are just free to access.  For those who own beach or lakefront properties, watching locals or tourists flooding your view of the lake or ocean is imaginably undesirable.  On the other hand, locals and tourists want to gain entry to some of the best coastal fishing, surfing, or sunbathing spots.  These two points of view is what fueled a 2018 lawsuit and eventual decision by the Indiana Supreme Court, granting public entry to Lake Michigan’s shoreline.           Read more

Astros Signal Potential Class Action

No cheating in baseball

Although two World Series champions have been named since the Houston Astros won the title in 2017, Los Angeles Dodgers fans still refuse to accept the defeat.  Instead, they are taking the matter one step further and are talking about initiating a class action lawsuit.  They plan to seek compensation for parking fees, Dodger dogs, and beer.  This potential class action comes in response to the termination of Astros manager AJ Hinch and general manager Jeff Luhnow, due to their roles in the use of audiovisual equipment to steal pitching signals from other teams during home games throughout the 2017 season.  Read more

We Are…In Legal Trouble

Tackling another lawsuit

Penn State Football is once again in the spotlight, and not for the team’s spectacular prospects or prior season performances.  Head coach James Franklin and several named players are involved in a hazing lawsuit, filed earlier this month by a former Nittany Lion.  Despite attempts to report the hazing to coach Franklin and staff, the former player claims he faced retaliation that affected his potential for success as a Penn State football player.  Although this one player faced the retaliation, the underclassmen as a whole were allegedly subjected to the harassment on and off the football field.

Customer Loyalty is Sloping

Pay to park

For those who frequent cities and attractions, it is typically assumed that you have to pay to park your car.  It is considered a perk to enjoy free parking, which is why routine skiers are fighting back at Vail Resorts Inc. following the recent implementation of a new fee policy at the premier parking location of Northstar California Resort. For years, visitors took advantage of the convenient access to the slopes from that parking lot; but now they are forced to reconsider their options.  A lawsuit was filed in December, alleging fraud and breach of contract against Vail Resorts Inc.
