#LipitorDangers - Missouri suit accusing Pfizer’s Lipitor of causing diabetes remanded to state court - http://blog.thomsonreuters.com/index.php/missouri-suit-accusing-pfizers-lipitor-of-causing-diabetes-remanded-to-state-court/ - But Judge Jackson disagreed with the pharmaceutical giant, finding that the New York and Delaware plaintiffs are not fraudulently joined.  They therefore defeat diversity jurisdiction, she said. The judge also rejected the drug maker’s motion to stay the suit until the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation rules on its motion to transfer the case and consolidate it with other pending Lipitor actions (see Westlaw Journal Pharmaceutical, Vol. 30, Iss. 2). The 89 plaintiffs in the Missouri case, who filed suit in the St. Louis County Circuit Court in January, claim they developed diabetes from using Lipitor (atorvastatin calcium) to lower their cholesterol levels. #LipitorDiabetes

Drone diving to record level in MH370 search - http://www.hindustantimes.com/world-news/drone-diving-to-record-level-in-mh370-search/article1-1209817.aspx - The Bluefin-21 and its "side scan" sonar has become the focal point of the search 2,000 km (1,200 miles) west of the Australian city of Perth, where authorities believe Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 hit the ocean after disappearing from radars on March 8 with 239 people on board. Now in its seventh week, the search has centred on a city-sized area where a series of "pings" led authorities to believe the plane's black box may be located. But after almost two weeks without a signal, and long past the black box battery's 30-day life expectancy, authorities have turned to the Bluefin-21.

FDA Issues Warning Over Laparoscopic Power Morcellation Tool - http://www.scienceworldreport.com/articles/14076/20140417/fda-issues-warning-over-laparoscopic-power-morcellation-tool.htm - The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning Thursday regarding a common surgical procedure that's used to remove uterine fibroids and benign tumors. Though this procedure is thought to usually cause no risk, new data shows that the laparoscopic power morcellation involves a electronic device that could significantly harm a women's chance of long-term survival, according to Reuters.

Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 Update: If filed, plane lawsuits might not get heard in US - http://www.sacbee.com/2014/04/16/6328273/if-filed-plane-lawsuits-might.html - Malaysia Airlines said in an email that it was focused on helping the families of the passengers and 12 crew members, and that "other matters will be dealt with appropriately." Some lawyers have argued that the families could still sue in America if they alleged the plane's U.S. manufacturer, the Boeing Co., was somehow responsible for the disaster. But such lawsuits are likely to be rejected if they're filed in the United States because federal courts there have dismissed many similar foreign air crash cases, especially if most of the plaintiffs are not American.

GM Replaced Failing Switch Before Selling Cadillac SUV - http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2014-04-16/gm-replaced-failing-switch-before-selling-cadillac-suv.html - esting engineers at the time had complained of “turning off the car with their knees while driving competitively,” according to a letter sent to U.S. regulators last week by Gary Greib, manager of product investigations at Delphi Automotive Systems LLC, GM’s ignition-switch supplier. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration posted the document on its website today.  
General Motors Co., the automaker recalling 2.59 million small cars for an ignition-switch flaw, uncovered and corrected a similar fault while testing its 2007 Cadillac SRX sport-utility vehicle, documents show.

#LegalNews   - Plaintiff's  lawyer argues that GM's bid to freeze the litigation may compromise public safety. #GMRecall   #AutoSafety   #ProductLiability  
General Motors Co.’s bid to freeze a lawsuit over faulty ignition switches may compromise public safety, plaintiffs told a judge in California, calling the automaker’s claim that its 2009 bankruptcy shielded it from the old GM’s liabilities “irrelevant” and a “red herring.”

Way Too Step Up!!!!
 
16 kids from St. Rafael Archangel School signed up for softball, but only 4 of the kids had gloves. Attorney Tom Perlberg heard about their misfortune and rallied the team at Hupy and Abraham, S.C. to donate equipment so that the kids could play. Not only did Attorney Perlberg make a personal donation, but the firm also contributed, to purchase enough equipment —twelve baseball gloves and a catcher’s mask —to make the kids baseball dreams come true!

Off-season may not be enough for football players' brains -http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/04/16/us-football-players-brains-idUSBREA3F1VB20140416 - Researchers discovered changes in the white matter of 10 college football players' brains after one season, compared to people who didn't play sports. After six months of not playing, the athletes' brains were still different. "Our best guess is that it's mild brain injury - the same kind of injury that the brain would undergo after having a concussion," Dr. Jeffrey Bazarian told Reuters Health.

How do we measure the actual time it takes, if that is possible, to repair the brain after a concussion? +Christopher Levinson
