Lots going on in legal news that you might’ve missed this past week–starting with our latest Lawyers Giving Back profile of Attorney Ed Susolik who took on a big insurance company on behalf of an 80-year old man—all because Susolik read about the situation in the newspaper! And he took on the man’s case pro bono. Nice to know there are some guardian angels out there willing to help folks when they least expect it.
We also covered Purina Waggin’ Train Yam Good dog treats, Hurricane Katrina FEMA trailers and an Allstate car insurance settlement in our Week Adjourned update on the latest class action lawsuits and settlements—followed by Asbestos News Roundup (with the focus on asbestos drilling mud and oil rig workers).
Finally, last week some of our team made a pilgrimage to Philadelphia–birthplace of our nation’s Constitution and, of course, the Declaration of Independence, for the 225th anniversary of the US Constitution. Lots to see—you can check out some pics on our Facebook page, too—and in the midst of it all, the spring return of Occupy Philly.
