Women's National Soccer Team Receives Class Certification in Quest for Equal Pay
spacer image
On November 8, 2019, U.S. District Judge for the Central District of California, R. Gary Klausner, granted class certification to the U.S. Senior Women’s National Soccer Team ("WNT") in its suit against the U.S. Soccer Federation Inc. The action was filed on March 8, 2019, just months before the team’s historic World Cup victory, naming all 28 current WNT players as named plaintiffs. In the complaint, the players claim that the U.S. Soccer Federation is in violation of the Equal Pay Act and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, alleging that the defendant’s pay structure is unfair to the women’s team in comparison to the less successful men’s league.

Claims of professional negligence, negligence, public nuisance, fraud and a request from the state for exemplary damages were dismissed, while a claim of unjust enrichment remains.

Wrongful Death

Pennsylvania Court Releases Nationwide Insurance from Home Shooting Lawsuit
spacer image
A Pennsylvania Superior Court panel has ruled that Nationwide Insurance has no obligation to cover a woman being sued over a murder that took place in her home. The lawsuit was filed by the family of a 41-year-old man who was shot during an argument at the defendant's home. She is accused of failing to prevent the shooter, the victim's stepson, from accessing the gun used in the shooting. The decision overturns a Philadelphia County judge’s ruling and frees Nationwide Insurance from the wrongful death lawsuit.

External Review Finds U-Md. Followed Protocol in Adenovirus Outbreak
spacer image
An outside review has found that the University of Maryland followed protocol in an adenovirus outbreak last year. However, the review board did give recommendations to the university for handling campus-wide emergencies. The outbreak resulted in the death of a student, whose parents are now filing suit against the university. The 18-year-old young woman died one year ago, after suffering from health problems during the several months she lived in a mold-infested dorm. Her parents filed a notice of claim against the university in May and plan to move forward with a wrongful death suit.
