Wrongful Death ~ 2018!

«• January 31, 2018 •»

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Lawsuits) - Hillary Clinton reportedly helped protect a senior adviser to her 2008 presidential campaign after accusations that he repeatedly sexually harassed a young subordinate. Media sources reported Friday on the incident. They revealed how Clinton allegedly intervened to help keep the adviser, Burns Strider, on board. According to the source, the complaint was made by a 30-year-old Clinton staffer. She shared an office with Strider. She reportedly told a campaign official that Strider had rubbed her shoulders inappropriately, kissed her on the forehead and sent suggestive emails. Clinton’s 2008 campaign manager, Patti Solis Doyle, reportedly recommended Clinton fire him. But sources said he was kept on the campaign at Clinton's request. Strider was ordered to receive counseling and lost several weeks of pay, while the young woman was shifted to a new role.

Sex Slavery At San Quentin!

Posted: 02:26 P.M. PST February 6, 2018 ~ Updated: 01:25 P.M. PST February 8, 2018
San Mateo, CA -- William Cordoba, 57, is serving a life sentence for a 1981 second-degree murder and robbery in San Francisco. The convicted murderer is serving time at San Quentin State Prison. Cordoba has been awarded $65,000 in damages by a federal jury. The jury agreed that the inmate had been turned into a “sex slave” by a female prison staffer. The abuse allegations date back to 2010. Silvia Pulido is a vocational janitorial instructor at San Quentin. Cordoba alleged in his lawsuit that he was assigned a job as a clerk in the office of Pulido. He further alleged that Pulido coerced him into trading sex acts. Pulido allegedly promised to help him obtain a lawyer to get out of prison. Cordoba alleged that he learned Pulido was also involved with another inmate, after being her “sex slave” for several months. Cordoba alleges he tried to break off the sexual relationship with Pulido. Pulido allegedly retaliated and accused him of disciplinary violations. The disciplinary violations landed him in solitary confinement for nine months. Cordoba said the whole ordeal led him to undergo psychiatric therapy. Cordoba sued Pulido in 2012. Cordoba alleged cruel and unusual punishment. The state Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation was not named as a defendant. Pulido was represented by private counsel. Pulido’s attorney challenged Cordoba's claims as delusional. A six-day trial was held last month in U.S. District Court in Oakland. An eight-member jury awarded Cordoba $15,414 in compensatory damages and $50,000 in punitive damages. Corrections and Rehabilitation spokesman Bill Sessa declined to say who will pay the judgment. The case is a win not just for Cordoba. His lawyers are eligible to collect attorney fees for having won the unusual civil rights suit. Pulido has since taken a job as a business services officer at Napa State Hospital. She, nor her attorneys returned our call seeking comment.

The plaintiff's alleged that Carrey illegally obtained “highly addictive and, in this case deadly” drugs under the name Arthur King. He then gave them to White, which subsequently causing her death in September 2015. Court Papers Say Carrey's Ex-Girlfriend Forged Her STD Tests to Extort Him. Miss White used a friend's medical records and changed the name and date on them. The actor's attorney claimed that Miss White had edited the patient information on a friend's 2011 STD test to make it seem the records were her own. Last year the Hollywood star claimed the Irish make-up artist had blackmailed him over claims he had given her herpes. He said that he paid her an undisclosed sum in 2013. The actor’s publicist had no further comment on the dismissal. The publicist did say: 'Jim is looking forward to moving on with his life now'. Carrey’s cross-complaint in response to the wrongful death suit has also been dismissed. The matters were dismissed on January 25, 2018.

Wrongful-Death Lawsuit

Posted: 11:26 A.M. EST January 30, 2018 ~ Updated: 12:17 P.M. PST January 31, 2018
Laurens County, Georgia -- David Hooks was shot to death by a Laurens County deputy during a drug raid at his home in 2014. Hooks' widow, Teresa Hooks, filed a wrongful-death lawsuit in federal court. The lawsuit named Sheriff Bill Harrell and deputies Chris Brewer and Steve Vertin as defendants. The lawsuit claims the raid was illegal and never should have happened. The lawsuit alleges that the search warrant was based on false information provided by a known drug addict. The man allegedly had methamphetamine and a set of scales at the time of his arrest. He claimed he’d stolen the items from a truck on the Hooks' property.
Sheriff Bill Harrell and the deputies alleged they did nothing wrong. In response to the lawsuit, Harrell released a statement. The statement read in part: “A cooperating source provided a container that he said he took from Hooks' vehicle, containing a significant amount of methamphetamine." Harrell also wrote: “According to the GBI crime lab, Biological evidence, including DNA matched the container to David Hooks."

The defendants asked federal Judge Dudley Bowen, to throw out the suit. Judge Bowen says the wrongful death lawsuit against the defendants can go forward. On Monday, Bowen said there are many factual questions about the raid that should be settled in a trial. He also wrote that jurors may consider Harrell's credibility for "gratuitously publishing false statements of DNA evidence purporting to link David Hooks" to methamphetamine that was found with the informant. In a videotaped deposition, Sheriff Harrell admitted releasing the wrong information about the death of David Hooks. In a publicly released statement, Sheriff Harrell wrote: “Rather than pick and choose out of context excerpts from days long depositions or pleadings from a lawsuit filed by the widow of David Hooks or – for that matter threats against his family, I, Sheriff Harrell will stick to the issues and to the truth. The truth is that probable cause existed for the execution of a knock and announce search warrant at the Hooks residence in 2014. Sworn officers of the Laurens’s County Sheriff Office properly sought and secured the search warrant from an independent magistrate and attempted to properly serve that warrant. The failure of David Hooks to comply with the clear and multiple announcements of the uniformed officer of the Sheriff’s Office and Mr. Hooks’ decision to point a weapon and continue to point it at law officers at close range was the reason for this unfortunate death. Out of respect for the proper law enforcement process, I, Sheriff Harrell sought to show restraint in not responding to outlandish and ultimately disproven claims and accusations from the representatives of Mr. Hooks and his widow, the media and others during the investigations required by law. Those investigations effectively vindicated the Sheriff and the officers of the Laurens County Sheriff’s Office. The Sheriff then and in all day to day operations of his office has sought to uphold the law for the people of Laurens County. Neither efforts to twist and spin the facts nor threats of violence will deter Sheriff Harrell from fulfilling his lawful duties to the people of this great community." No trial date has been set on the lawsuit.

California, USA -- Consumers who purchased Roundup Concentrate products for personal or household use may be able to file a claim for 50 percent reimbursement of the weighted average retail price. The consumer must have purchased Roundup Weed & Grass Killer Concentrate Plus or Roundup Weed & Grass Killer Super Concentrate. The class action suits say the products were advertised as having the ability to create more spray than they were actually capable of making. Monsanto admits no liability in the class action lawsuits. However, Monsanto agreed to pay $21.5 million to resolve the litigation. Class Members can claim refunds for eight varieties of Roundup Concentrates listed in the settlement agreement. The cash settlement(s) are equivalent to approximately one-half of their weighted average retail price during the relevant Class Period. Claims are limited to 20 units per household. The consumer may be entitled to a cash payment under the terms of the $21.5 million class action settlement. The settlement resolves two class action lawsuits against Monsanto over the Roundup Concentrate products. Consumers who bought the Roundup products in California on or after Oct. 13, 2012 are considered eligible Class Members. Residents of other states who purchased the products on or after April 5, of the relevant year under their state’s statute of limitations may also be able to file a claim. Class Members can object to the settlement, or exclude themselves from it by submitting a written request no later than March 6, 2018.
