Ad: Deadly #Superbug bacteria from contaminated #endoscopes has infected patients nationwide that underwent #ERCP procedures. More than 500,000 ERCP procedures occur each year in the U.S. Often patients with pancreatic cancer and colon cancer receive ERCP. The specialized medical scope, called #duodenoscope , is used to diagnose and treat diseases of the liver, bile ducts, and pancreas.

Lieff Cabraser represents injured patients in individual lawsuits against manufacturers of duodenoscopes charging that the devices are defectively designed.

Today Lieff Cabraser and Transgender Law Center announced a groundbreaking decision in the case Lusardi v. McHugh, pending before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the federal agency that enforces U.S. laws against workplace discrimination.

In this case of first impression, the EEOC reversed a lower agency decision and held that the employer subjected our client, Tamara Lusardi, to disparate treatment and harassment based on sex in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 when (1) the employer restricted her from using the common female restroom (consistent with her gender identity) and (2) a team leader intentionally and repeatedly referred to her by male pronouns and made hostile remarks about her transition and gender.

In response to high cash wheat price in late Summer 2011, food giants Kraft Foods and Mondelez Global developed a strategy to buy $90 million of December 2011 wheat futures, which amounted to a six-month supply of wheat, according to a complaint filed by the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CTFC).

Lieff Cabraser invites wheat futures investors to contact our antitrust lawyers for a free and no-obligation review of their claim. We represent investors and companies across America seeking recovery for their losses due to price fixing, market manipulation, and other types of fraud. Again, there is no charge or obligation for our review of your claim. To contact our law firm, visit http://www.lieffcabraser.com/Case-Center/Kraft-Modelez-Wheat-Price-Fixing.shtml
The CFTC charged Kraft Foods Group and Mondelez Global with manipulating what futures and cash wheat prices, the agency announced Wednesday.

In an article for The Tennessean, Lieff Cabraser attorney +Mark Chalos from the Nashville office discusses the right to a #jury #trial in #civillawsuits , and how authorities are trying to take that right away from Tennesseans. Chalos writes, "Our legislature should reject the coordinated efforts of deep-pocketed special interests to convince them to take away individual rights to benefit a powerful, wealthy few." #TennesseeConstitution  
Tennessee must respect rights of citizens to get justice in the court system.

"Even before there's a verdict in this case, and regardless of what the verdict is, people in Silicon Valley are now talking," Lieff Cabraser Kelly Dermody comments to the Los Angeles Times in an article on the impact of the Ellen Pao gender discrimination lawsuit. "People are second-guessing and questioning whether there are exclusionary practices [and] everyday subtle acts of exclusion that collectively limit women's ability to succeed or even to compete for the best opportunities. And that's an incredibly positive impact." #genderdiscrimination #womenintech  
She was a junior partner at one of Silicon Valley's most powerful venture capital firms. But was Ellen Pao a greedy underperformer? Or was she a victim of a sexist corporate culture?

Ad: The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration may reopen the safety investigation of 2.7 million older model Jeep SUVs linked to dozens of gas tank fires that erupted following rear-end collisions. Last week, a Georgia jury awarded the family of a 4-year-old killed in a Jeep SUV fire $150 million. The jury found Fiat Chrysler acted with "reckless or wanton disregard for human life in the design or sale" of the SUV.

Lieff Cabraser represents persons with serious burn injuries and the families of loved ones who died in car fires and fuel tank explosions.

NHTSA Administrator Mark Rosekind didn‘t rule out it could reopen its investigation into the 2.7 million older SUVs

In its annual list of the nation’s top jury verdicts, the National Law Journal selected two cases tried by Lieff Cabraser lawyers. Both trials occurred in federal court in Florida, where Lieff Cabraser represents smokers and families of loved ones who died from smoking-related diseases. The lawsuits charged that the tobacco companies engaged in a 50-year conspiracy to conceal the hazards of smoking and the addictive nature of cigarettes.

Lieff Cabraser trial attorneys introduced evidence at both trials showing that 90 percent of daily cigarette smokers start smoking as teenagers, and that the tobacco industry targeted youth for this reason. For decades, including during the period the plaintiffs as teenagers became addicted to nicotine, the tobacco industry widely marketed smoking cigarettes, using celebrities, famous athletes, and advertising on television shows popular with children and teenagers.
