Some phones from Apple, Samsung and other manufacturers have been found producing radiation higher than the safe levels set by the federal government. The discovery sparked concerns among experts and industry members, saying tech companies may put consumers at risk in the future.
CHICAGO (Legal Newsline) – A customer of the world's largest online gift shop alleges he and other consumers were exposed to credit card theft after a data breach earlier this year.
Any claim Mr. Weinstein could make for payment in chapter 11 could be challenged by lawyers liquidating his studio and Weinstein Co. creditors. Lawyers overseeing the studio’s liquidation have objected to Mr. Weinstein’s pending request for business records that his attorneys say are needed for an accounting of the amount he is owed.
A group of lawyers has filed a federal class-action lawsuit against Apple and Samsung, citing a Tribune investigation that tested popular cellphones for radiofrequency radiation and found some results over the federal exposure limit.
"As galling as it is to know that a national retailer like CafePress failed in its duty to safeguard consumer information, it is reprehensible that they knew—or should have known—about the breach and failed to warn their customers that their credit card information and Social Security numbers could be for sale to the highest bidder on the dark web."
But the justice system’s ability to hold those accused of sexual crimes to account is also being tested. The low conviction rates for rape and sexual assault are often blamed on under-reporting. Less than a quarter of estimated sexual assaults are reported to police. No such excuse exists in the Weinstein case.
