Hair Care Manufacturer Faces Class Claims Alleging Its Hair Renewal Products Cause Hair Loss
spacer image
On February 20, 2018, self-described “Modern Nature” hair care manufacturer Monat was hit with a proposed class action suit claiming that the company’s products cause hair loss and irritation. Named plaintiffs Trisha Whitmire and Emily Yanes de Flores filed the suit in Florida federal court. Plaintiffs claim that despite being aggressively promoted as naturally based and safe for all skin and hair types and being clinically proven to cause hair regrowth, the products, in reality, caused skin irritation and hair loss.

Toyota Was Aware of Decreased Prius Fuel Economy, Says Lawsuit
spacer image
A lawsuit was filed this month in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles alleging that Toyota failed to alert consumers that a fix for an issue with its Prius model cars caused drivers to lose fuel economy. According to the lawsuit, the carmaker "concealed from consumers that the software reflash decreased the fuel efficiency — defeating the very purpose of owning these hybrid vehicles." The complaint states that a fix for problems with the electrical system overheating led to a decrease in the cars' fuel economy by about five miles per gallon. The lawsuit is seeking class action status.

Laws/Cases

 
Four States File Suit Challenging Electoral College System

Lawsuits have been filed in four states challenging the Electoral College system for elections, which allows a candidate to win the election despite losing the popular vote. The complaint was filed by a coalition that includes a Latino membership organization and a former Massachusetts governor and contends that the "system denies citizens their constitutional right to an equal vote by discarding votes for candidates who lose in a state and magnifying the votes of those who win there." The lawsuits were filed on Wednesday in federal courts in Massachusetts, California, South Carolina, and Texas.

The Trump administration has been hit with a lawsuit seeking protections for immigrants from El Salvador and Haiti. The federal lawsuit was filed on Thursday by several civil rights groups who say that the president has demonstrated a “racially discriminatory immigration agenda.” The complaint challenges Trump's decision to end special protections that shielded immigrants from the two countries from deportation. The lawsuit was filed in federal court in Boston.

Louisiana Secretary of State Tom Schedler has been accused in a lawsuit of sexually harassing a female employee. The lawsuit filed on Thursday in the 19th Judicial District Court in Baton Rouge alleges that the defendant propositioned the woman multiple times over a decade. Additionally, the complaint states that Schedler "engaged in a pattern and practice of sexual harassment and retaliatory harassment" against the plaintiff and created a "sexually hostile and abusive working environment." Schedler says he has not yet seen the lawsuit but takes "any allegation of sexual harassment very seriously."

Recall Issued For Yayi Outdoor Gas Fire Pit Table Patio Heaters
spacer image
Outdoor Gas Fire Pit Table Patio Heaters made by Yayi and sold exclusively at Home Depot have been recalled for a burn hazard. "The bowl base of the fire pits lacks a heat shield to protect consumers from burns while turning off the propane tank after use, posing a burn hazard," states the lawsuit. About 58,000 of the fire pits were sold at Home Depot stores nationwide and online from August 2016 through November 2017. There have been three reports of consumers who were burned while turning off the propane tank after using the gas fire pit.

Wrongful Death

 
Wrongful Death Suit Against Missouri Hospital Dismissed Without Prejudice
spacer image
A wrongful death lawsuit against Capital Region Medical Center in Jefferson City, Missouri has been dismissed. The lawsuit was filed in Cole County Circuit Court by the family of a woman who died after being treated at the hospital for a fall she suffered in her home. The complaint stated that the woman was treated for colitis at the hospital and after a week's stay was transferred to a nursing care facility. The woman died the same day and her family alleged her death was triggered by care she received at the hospital. The lawsuit was dismissed without prejudice, meaning that a lawsuit could be filed again in the future.
