The Top 10 legal news stories our readers were most interested in this week.
#1 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.
#2 More Zantac Cancer Lawsuits and Recalls
Santa Clara, CA As more pharmaceutical companies are hit with Zantac cancer lawsuits, they are recalling the acid reflux medication in the U.S. and Canada over complaints of a link to a probable carcinogen called called N-nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA), a chemical that has already been found in animals.
#5 Disney’s Overtime Deal
Santa Clara, CA Disneyland workers on November 4 got the green light to settle their California overtime class action lawsuit, but a federal judge needs “further convincing” before approving one-third of the $2 million settlement for attorney fees.
#7 Lisinopril Also Linked to Kidney Damage?
Eau Claire, WI Although Joanne knows that Lisinopril has been linked to liver damage, she can't help but wonder if this ACE inhibitor, which is used to control high blood pressure, could also be associated with kidney problems.
#8 Neighborhoods Sue Tonawanda Coke
Buffalo, NY People living in a Buffalo suburb had good reason to suspect they were being negatively affected by the Tonawanda Coke plant. "It has three big smoke stacks," says environmental law attorney Charles Cobb. "People who live around there sometimes talk about 'a bad day.' That's when the air is overwhelmed visually, combined with a noticeable smell from the plant."
#9 Goldman Sachs 401k Plan Participants file ERISA Lawsuit over Self-Dealing
New York, NY A class action ERISA lawsuit filed on October 25 in the Southern District of New York claims that Goldman Sachs Inc. and related defendants failed to administer the Goldman Sachs Group Inc. 401k plan prudently and in the best interest of participants. Instead, Falberg v. Goldman Sachs Group Inc. alleges that Goldman managed the plan to benefit the company at the expense of participants. Plan fiduciaries did this by keeping many underperforming proprietary mutual funds in the investment lineup.
#10 Florida Premises Liability Lawsuit Results in Jury Award for Burn Victim
While Florida premises liability runs the gamut from dog bites to slips and falls, proprietors of hot food and beverages are required to observe caution in order to avoid spills of hot liquid that could injure either an employee, or a customer. To that end, a Starbucks located in the Sunshine State has been hit with a $100,000 judgement over a hot-liquid spill that resulted in a consumer suffering a burn injury.
