J&J Presents Article in Asbestos Talc Trial Indicating Weak Link to Peritoneal Mesothelioma

J&J Presents Article in Asbestos Talc Trial Indicating Weak Link to Peritoneal Mesothelioma August 15, 2019. By Jane Mundy.
New Brunswick, NJ: Johnson & Johnson presented scientific literature during the latest asbestos talc trial on August 9 indicating a “weak link” between peritoneal mesothelioma and asbestos exposure, challenging testimony of pathologist John Maddox and the four plaintiffs who have been diagnosed with this form of cancer. All four were exposed to asbestos in J&J baby powder when they were babies, which allegedly caused their terminal cancer. Babies are even more susceptible to the risks of asbestos exposure because their cells are still developing and because they breathe faster, increasing the amount of asbestos they might breathe in, plaintiff’s attorney Moshe Maimon told the jury.

Washington, DC It was buried on page 70 of Ford Motor Co.’s March 31 SEC Form 10-Q, just before the last of many charts. The bland and reassuring words with which Ford disclosed a Department of Justice criminal investigation into Ford fuel economy representations belies the potential importance of that investigation to Ford class action lawsuits that now target both the Ford Ranger and F-150 truck models.

Google’s Age Discrimination Settlement--Again

Google’s Age Discrimination Settlement--Again August 9, 2019. By Jane Mundy.
Sacramento, CA: Wisdom doesn’t necessarily come with age, at least not with Google. If it did, Google would have wizened up a decade ago, when the courts warned the Internet giant of its “systematic practice of discrimination" involving job applicants who were age 40 and over. Instead, it recently shelled out $11 million to settle a California age discrimination class action lawsuit.

Uber to Settle Class Action Contract Lawsuit for $395,000 August 5, 2019. By Anne Wallace.
San Francisco, CA The U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California appears ready to approve a settlement in Dulberg v. Uber Technologies Inc. that will net nearly a quarter of the drivers only $20. The class action lawsuit is notable for two reasons. It was brought as a contract lawsuit, not under the provisions of California labor employment law. Secondly, the payouts are very small for many of those included in the class. Even Judge William Alsup, who presided over the case, described the settlement as “a low-end recovery for the class.”
