Salvage Owner Jailed for Asbestos Violations

Salvage Owner Jailed for Asbestos Violations December 6, 2016. By Gordon Gibb.
Owensboro, KY: It’s a situation that is the closest one might come to a crystal ball: the sentencing of a salvage company owner who allowed the demolition of an asbestos-laden tire plant without protecting his workers from asbestos fibers.

Thousands of Risperdal Lawsuit Allege Risperdal Side Effects September 9, 2016. By Gordon Gibb.
Washington, DC: It’s not that difficult to understand why Johnson & Johnson, the makers of anti-psychotic drug Risperdal (risperidone), would take lawsuits and criticism in stride given the revenues generated by the blockbuster drug: reported by Bloomberg to be $24.2 billion in worldwide sales from 2003 through 2010. In that sense, any corresponding Risperdal lawsuits over Risperdal side effects such as the growth of male breasts, or risk-taking activity beyond the perimeters of regulatory boundaries, could be seen as simply a cost of doing business.
