Facebook Lawsuit

Facebook Privacy Lawsuit

A U.S. District Court in San Jose, California, has allowed a lawsuit accusing Facebook of privacy violations to proceed. The lawsuit has claimed that the most popular social-networking site in the world gave advertisers unauthorized access to personal information of users when they clicked on ads. Though the court dismissed eight claims due to lack of tangible evidence, it rejected the plea by the social-networking site to dismiss the entire lawsuit and allowed five claims to be refiled. Judge James Ware observed that the allegations by the plaintiffs were enough to establish the fact that they have suffered the injury.
The plaintiffs, two individuals from California, filed the lawsuit against Facebook earlier this year seeking damages for injury caused on eight grounds, violation of the Electronic Communications Privacy Act, Stored Communications Act, fraud, breach of contract, unfair competition, and other claims. According to the plaintiffs, Facebook allowed advertisers to access their profiles and personal information after they clicked on advertisements between February 2010 and March 2010. They claim this act of the social-networking major make them feel “injured,” as advertisers are not authorized to access names, genders, and pictures of users without their consent.

Botox Side Effects Lawsuit Attorney

The New Jersey Assembly Health and Senior Services Committee approved a bill on May 19th proposing a ban on injecting Botox to people younger than 18. The bill prohibits minors from taking botulinum toxin injections for cosmetic purposes unless a doctor prescribes them for medical problems. It cites a report by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery that warns of large-scale use of these injections by teenagers and concomitant side effects. It followed the widely published news of a California mother giving Botox injections to her 8-year-old daughter to prepare her for a beauty pageant contest. The San Francisco Human Services Agency began an investigation and the mother was relieved of the responsibility of the custody of the child after the incident sparked protests from the medical community and child right activists.

Botox is used to treat strabismus, facial spasms, and neurological disorders by preventing abnormal muscle contractions. Its cosmetic use has been very popular as the botulinum toxin protein smoothes facial wrinkles. However, if not carefully targeted, the drug can lead to serious side effects, including death.

Botox Side Effects Complaints

The FDA allowed Allergan to manufacture and distribute Botox in 1989 for therapeutic use in patients above 12 years. It approved its cosmetic use in April 2002. However, the drug was linked to deaths and several other harmful side effects soon. A report in the Journal of American Academy of Dermatology’s September 2005 issue revealed that about 28 individuals had died due to Botox between 1989 and 2003. This led to demand for investigations, which revealed that Botox could spread to other areas in the body and impact them. The FDA admitted in February 2008 that the drug was responsible for serious adverse reactions, such as respiratory failure and death.

In April 2009, the FDA announced updated
