In a statement, the company said it complies with wage and hour laws, but doesn't comment on pending litigation. The case was filed in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York.

In the CB Richard Ellis case, filed in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, John Rulli, a former maintenance worker for the commercial real-estate services company in Muskego, Wis., said he wasn't paid for after-hours time spent receiving and responding to messages on his cellphone, said Weinberg Law Firm, Labor Lawyer Dallas.

Los Angeles man gets second DUI in two weeks

Anderson allegedly tried to buy beer there but was rebuffed by a store clerk, who told police he could smell alcohol on Anderson's breath and believed him to be already drunk. Anderson allegedly became angry at the clerk, who ran out of the store in fear that Anderson might hurt him.

A bystander saw the commotion and called 911 as Anderson allegedly got back into his car and began driving away, police said late last month. Anderson's car was curbed by police a few minutes later, said Michael Bialys, Los Angeles DUI lawyer.

Anderson in that matter was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, driving with an alcohol concentration level of .08 or more, disorderly conduct and failure to signal a turn, court records indicated. He is scheduled to appear Aug. 18 in court in that case.

Porch catastrophic injury: New York says it's up to you

"It was just a real old porch," said Ames, 56, who suffered torn leg ligaments and is suing his landlord for medical expenses and lost wages after being forced out of work for a month. "This has affected my ability to support my kids."

The landlord, Jeff Bravo, said he didn't realize the structure was in such bad shape, said John Q. Kelly, a New York catastrophic injury lawyer.

"I want to keep the place up to code," said Bravo, who has placed a larger wood plank over the damage while waiting for repair estimates to arrive. A sign warns tenants to stay off the structure.
In West Rogers Park, Kashif Khundmiri has for several months feared that a rotting porch system in an abandoned apartment building next to his family's house could present an open invitation to neighborhood children playing nearby.

Northrop Grumman-TRW whistle-blower case settle

Ferro said in his lawsuit that TRW sold the government electronic components that the company knew would fail. Ferro is an electrical engineer for the Aerospace Corp., a federally funded research lab that was evaluating a satellite transistor for the Pentagon.

The whistle-blower filed the lawsuit in 2002 under the False Claims Act, which allows people not affiliated with the whistleblower lawyer Los Angeles to sue federal contractors on behalf of the government.

Huron Consulting's attractive saga quickly losing its feel-good aspect

David Greising
August 4, 2009

Huron's financial restatements will be central to the unfolding fracas. Yet Huron helped promote litigation lawyer Chicago by delivering periodic estimates of losses experienced by shareholders due to earnings restatements. A 2006 study for the Government Accountability Office put the cost in the billions of dollars.

Now, Huron faces its own restatement costs, the most prominent likely damage inflicted on this once-promising firm.

One analyst, Daniel Leben of Robert Baird & Co., in a Monday research report cited "legitimate worries" about Huron's ability to survive as a going concern. That dire language, though perhaps premature, is the same alarmist syntax analysts used after Andersen first faced its Enron troubles.

Wednesday, July 22, 2009

The crash occurred less than two miles from the Pittsburgh Monroeville interchange.

The eastbound lanes of the Pennsylvania Turnpike were closed last night near the Monroeville exit until about 5 a.m., police said.

Ms. Baker was pronounced dead at 10:48 p.m. at Forbes Regional. An autopsy is scheduled later today, the Allegheny County medical examiner said.

Her son suffered only minor DUI injuries. He was taken to Forbes Regional, and then flown by helicopter to Children's Hospital.

His condition was not immediately available.

According to county court records, Ms. Baker was arrested twice this year -- in May and June -- on charges of driving under the influence of psychotropic prescription drugs.

She had been free on her own recognizance, pending trial.
