An environmental lawsuit against Behr and Chrysler is moving forward after a federal court granted it class action status. Named as defendants in the lawsuit are Behr and other defendants, including Chrysler Motors LLC and Aramark Uniform and Career Apparel. The lawsuit was filed by a number of residents of Dayton, Ohio who say the defendants contaminated parts of the city’s groundwater with “toxic, carcinogenic and otherwise ultra-hazardous chemicals.” Federal Judge Walter Rice ruled that some of the lawsuit's claims are “suitable for class action treatment.”

According to the complaint, the Department of Homeland Security is guilty of violating both the First and Fourth Amendments, by demanding that travelers present their cellphones for searches.

Baylor University has filed a motion to dismiss a lawsuit filed against the school over sexual assault claims surrounding its football program. On Tuesday, the school moved to dismiss the lawsuit filed by a woman allegedly gang-raped by members of the school football team in 2013. The lawsuit cited 52 "acts of rape" by players on the team between 2011 and 2014. In Tuesday's filing, Baylor stated it “does not agree with or concede the accuracy of Plaintiff’s 146-paragraph complaint and its immaterial and inflammatory assertions.”

Fox News is facing a racial discrimination lawsuit by two black women who say they were victims of "top-down racial harassment." The women filed suit Tuesday night in State Supreme Court in the Bronx alleging that they were subjected to racially-charged comments by their supervisor in the payroll department. The women allege that the company’s longtime comptroller made racially discriminatory comments, including suggestions that black men were “women beaters.” According to the complaint, Fox allowed “severe and pervasive discrimination and harassment” to occur by failing to respond to the plaintiffs' complaint and reprimand the comptroller.
