Land Trust Lawsuit - Indian -

 

Indian Land Trust Lawsuit

On December 12, 2012, the court gave a green signal to commence distribution of payments to American Indians as per the $3.4 billion Indian land trust lawsuit settlement between tribes and the federal government. Federal Judge Thomas Hogan of Washington, D. C., permitted Atlanta-based law firm Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton, which represented the litigants, to start the first round of distribution. About 350,000 beneficiaries of 41 native Indian tribes across the United States are expected to receive $1,000 checks. The payments are to be given as part of the 2009 Indian land trust lawsuit settlement, which was filed by Elouise Cobell, a Montana banker, in 1996, alleging mismanagement of land trust royalties by the federal government.

Cymbalta Side Effects Attorney

cymbalta-side-effects-lawsuit-attorneyAntidepressant Cymbalta ranks among the Top 10 most reported prescription drugs for adverse events in the United States. The drug was reported 278 times on the FDA MedWatch program for causing serious side effect injuries in 2011. According to the Institute for Safe Medication Practices, the nodal agency for monitoring prescription drug side effect injuries and the publisher of the QuarterWatch surveillance report, manufacturer Eli Lilly was aware of at least 789 incidents where users suffered from severe adverse events caused by Cymbalta.


Cymbalta carries a black box warning, the highest FDA safety alert, for suicidal thoughts and is listed as a “Do Not Use” pill by the consumer group Public Citizen. The antidepressant is used to treat major depressive disorders, musculoskeletal pain, diabetic peripheral neuropathy, and stress urinary incontinence. However, a number of research studies have also highlighted the fact that the antidepressant fails to offer any significant benefit over other existing medications commonly used to treat these disorders. The medication side effects are also linked to liver toxicity, psychiatric disorders, sensory disturbances, neurological problems, Stevens-Johnson syndrome, sexual dysfunction, and serotonin syndrome.

Bed Bugs Lawsuit

 

After moving into her new Annapolis apartment in 2011, Faika Shaaban began to develop a rash on her body. Little did she know that the rash had been caused by bed bugs. Faika was the victim of an unscrupulous landlord who had been notified just weeks earlier that the apartment he would eventually rent to her had a serious bed bug infestation.


With hundreds of bites and a rash Faika did the right thing and hired a professional lawsuit attorney to file a lawsuit against the landlord.

We are happy to announce that a Jury in Anne County has officially awarded her $800,000 in the case. With $650.000 of that reward being for punitive damages, we are hoping this will send a clear message and warning to landlords and hotels alike. If your property has bed bugs and you do not clean it up , you will be sued.

Intentional Injury Lawsuit Know How To Seek Your Claim

On July 11, 2013, a 49-year-old luxury car business owner initiated an intentional injury lawsuit against former NBA and Chicago Bulls star Scottie Pippen seeking $4 million compensation for “brutal and unjustified physical attack.” According to the intentional injury compensation claim filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, the plaintiff suffered from breathing difficulties, headaches, and other ongoing medical issues following assault by the former NBA MVP at a Malibu restaurant. A week earlier, an Arkansas couple sued a man for $20.5 million, alleging that they suffered from traumatic brain injury, loss of cognitive skills and memory, and speech difficulties after having been assaulted by the defendant at a Downtown Conway restaurant.

More than 10,000 intentional injury lawsuits are filed by U.S. residents, citing abuse, assault, defamation, violence, and other injuries.
