#1  Employee Stock Ownership Lawsuit Unmasks Brazen Corporate Fraud

Uber Slammed -- From California to Canada
#2  Uber Slammed -- From California to Canada
Santa Clara, CA Uber and Lyft are getting slammed, from California to Canada. In May, California sued the ride-hailing companies claiming they misclassified their drivers as independent contractors under the state’s new labor law, Bill AB5.

Mosanto and Regulators vs. Consumers
#4  Mosanto and Regulators vs. Consumers

#5  Like Death and Taxes, There Is No Escape from a Xarelto Bleedout

California Court Rejects Dignity Health Settlement Again
#6  California Court Rejects Dignity Health Settlement Again
Oakland, CA The long-awaited settlement in Rollins v. Dignity Health, a class action ERISA lawsuit, that has been moving through the legal system since 2013, continues to be just that – long awaited.

#7  Aftermath of a Horrific Amusement Park Accident

#8  Nursing Homes in Illinois House the Elderly with Felons, Mentally Ill
Chicago, IL If you have an elderly relative destined for a nursing home—and in particular, an Illinois nursing home—you stand an increasing chance of having your loved one housed in a facility, or even sharing a room with either a felon or someone who is mentally ill. Sometimes both. As the Chicago Tribune discovered during an investigation last year, it's a growing trend.

Lisinopril—Hidden Dangers
#9  Lisinopril—Hidden Dangers
Las Vegas, NV Many prescription drugs are as common as aspirin; it's no wonder that many consumers don't read warning labels or consider that a medication could be associated with side effects. Take Lisinopril, for instance. It is one of the most widely prescribed drugs in the US, and it also has the potential to harm a lot of people.

FDA Pulls Zantac off Shelves
#10  FDA Pulls Zantac off Shelves

Zantac cancer lawsuits that cite the link between heartburn medications that contain ranitidine and various forms of cancer have been forming for months. The FDA has now finally taken affirmative steps to protect consumers.
